Wax Vac is a gentle and effective way to clean out the ears. The Wax Vac is a powerful, yet gentle way to eliminate dirt and moisture out of the ear safely. We have always been told never to use cotton tipped swabs in our ears, but still people continue to do it. When a cotton swab is used, the dirt and water can be pushed further into the ear canal causing pain and even damage to the inner ear. This machine is cordless, handheld, and is about the size of an ear thermometer.
How does the Wax Vac Work?
The Wax Vac works in a similar way an ear thermometer does. It has a silicone tip that fits into the ear canal just far enough to reach the dirt and water that has accumulated. On the Wax Vac there is a ear guard to prevent the unit from going any farther than it should. It has a gentle suction that simply draws the debris away in a safe manner.
Who can use the Wax Vac?
The Wax Vac is safe for adults and children alike. It’s common to think that adults are the ones who suffer from wax build-up in their ears, but so do children. No matter if your kid was swimming or taking a shower, water can get in their ears. That can be uncomfortable and they just want the water out. Children tend to squirm and not sit still, so you surely do not want to be sticking cotton swabs into their ears.
This is a much safer alternative because of the ear guard. You can rest assured that your child’s ear drums won’t be hit and damaged at all. The Wax Vac also has a lighted tip at the end, so when you go to clean out the little one’s ears, you can look into the ear canal. Plus, the Wax Vac is quiet, so little children won’t be afraid. It’s a safe way for the entire family to clean out their ears effectively.
Does Wax Vac Run on Batteries?
Wax Vac does indeed run on batteries. It takes two standard AA batteries that can be purchased at almost any store. There is no hassle of a cord and you don’t have to worry about charging it before using. The batteries make it convenient when traveling, especially overseas where the wall outlet may be different.
