Ear gunk

On a daily basis I am able to scrape some sort of gubbins from the outsides of my ears and from behind where they meet my head. Tiny little yellow dots. It’s been happening for about a year now. The first time I did it I got a real job load so now I’m taking care of it before it gets too grubby.

I’d love to hear stories about your ear gunk, chaps. Gunk from other parts of your bodies is also welcome

Had an ex that used to eat hers, something in our relationship died when I found that out


I’ve not had that external ear gunk, just a lot of ear wax. Which a bobby pin can remove or failing that an empty biro attached to the shower. Not that I do either of those :confused:

isn’t that what cotton buds are for

Not gunk-related, but for my birthday last year I got an ear and nose hair trimmer and it’s fantastic. On the occasions when I remember to use it I can almost pass as human afterwards.

You shouldn’t use cotton buds.

because of the environment or because you’ll get them stuck in your head?

Kind of miss it. A downside to going bald and using clippers instead. I think I might have briefly tried to do the burning thing myself once. Don’t think it went well.

A Bic lighter is no substitute.

I think doctors tell you you should clean your ear out with your elbow, but frankly I can’t see how you’d do that.

Because it can damage your eardrum, as they tend to push the wax further in.

I’ve read about putting olive oil in your ears too. It has to be extra virgin though, first pressing.

i was talking about cleaning the outside of your ears with them (the ear flaps) not jamming them inside the canal

sounds much warmer


you can defo jam them in the canal
you just have to rub them around the walls rather than straight in

im not having anyone come at me with that “you shouldn’t put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear” bullshit


Gonna sell that wax on discogs for sweet, sweet cash

Love this stuff.


i mean, you can. dunno if you should.

you’ve got to clear that shit out!
