Ear candles.. Take a one foot square of cotton cloth. Dip it in wax and roll it into a cone with the top about 1 inch across. Put the small end in your ear and light the other end. Let burn half way down.

There has been consistant interest in ear candles here. One report that ear candles did nothing. I liked my _one_ experience with them.

Ear candles are 9-12 inch squares of plain cotton cloth, dipped in wax, and rolled into cones about 1 inch across at the top.

You lay down and have someone place the narrow end of the candle in your ear. Light the candle and let it burn half way down. You can put it thru a hole in a paper plate to catch the ashes.

Ear candles allegedly will completely clean your ears, even small objects stuck there.

The FDA pulled ear candles off the shelf because the wax might run down the candle into your ear.
