Go in where? The EAR!! I have those at home, too. They know that's what people are using them for, not for putting bactine on scraped knees like their website shows. ;-7

Exactly. There's these drops you can use too, if you don't like the Q-tips. You put the drops in your ear, tilt your head for a couple minutes, then tilt back the other way and let all the crap drip out. Sounds horrible, but it's supposed to be "safer".

Q-Tips are quite handy. ;-D

But I ain't gonna lie, I clean my ears with them. The whole family does. Always have. :-b

I clean my ears every morning in the shower while washing my hair... hot soapy water is all it takes to keep things clean.

You might as well. It's not like he's going to be needing it, with that risky lifestyle he's living!

Ya could clean your ear with a stick like they do in Japan...

These little plastic sticks come attached on a plastic tree (like plastic model kit parts), and you twist one free to use it. What I discovered is that the business end is sticky, so I suppose it's meant to clean the outer ear canal by grabbing onto foreign particles. It doesn't work so well for ear wax, since ear wax resists adhering to a sticky surface, so I'm not entirely sure what the purpose of this product is.

Apparently sticking it into your ear too far is contraindicated, as it is with cotton swabs. I'm not sure you could even get away with selling a product like this in the United States (the dollar store notwithstanding), because you know some moron is going to perforate their child's eardrum with it.


(The write-up isn't mine, it's off some blog)

...or you can get these fashionable black cotton swabs in Japan:
