It is widely believed that our ears require as deep and as frequent a cleaning as possible. As it turns out, nothing could be further from the truth! You should only clean the outer (visible) part of the ear cavity — and only with the help of a moist piece of cotton. And another important thing: you shouldn’t clean any deeper than you would with a finger!
Garlic has antimicrobial properties because of the allicin it contains. For this reason, it was widely used to treat ear infections and a variety of other infections as well. Just put a tiny piece of garlic on a thread, and pull it out when it is not comfortable anymore.
