After 15 years of marriage he has finally let me have a go.

Every so often the wax builds up. Normally it gets bad enough for him to be practically deaf in one ear - and only then will he finally use the olive oil and then see the nurse 10 days later for syringing. He has never let me accompany him to the nurse <sulks>.

This time....he let me not only<sigh>.

It was amazing.

We got a special syringe-y thing from Amazon. Olive oil for a few days and then I set to it.

He is totally grossed out by the whole thing.

He allowed me to take photos of the results.

He knows I want to share it with my fellow sporners.

He thinks we are all utterly grim. grin

Taps fingers for pics......

Oh dear. Did I forget the photos? Are you sure you want to see them? They are quite grim if you don't like that sort of thing.

A real klaxon needed so do not continue to read this thread if you are not of the sporner-family.

Bertolli tub never put to such good use....the gunky water coming out of DH's ear...

And then the entrance to his ear gave up pure Sporner-Gold....removed with loving care by the cotton buds.

I definitely don't want to see... hangs about enthusiastically

Happy cross post wink

TwentyChews Thu 22-Dec-16 14:17:31

Sorry, sorry, sorry, DS fell over on the kitchen floor....hence the delay.

girlandboy Thu 22-Dec-16 14:19:01

The middle cotton bud was especially productive!

That looks amazing. You need to attack him with a Kirby grip...

Spendymcspendy Thu 22-Dec-16 14:20:06

Ahhh relief, good job Twenty and great use of the Bertolli tub grin

Early christmas pressent for you?

TwentyChews Thu 22-Dec-16 14:30:53

There is more in there - but DH is very wary of things in his ears - so we are doing a softly, softly approach. He will olive oil for a few more days and a few more goes with the syringe. <happy sigh>

And then his other ear is also getting blocked up - so once Ear One is clear I can he will start on Ear Two.

All my Christmases have come at once. <another happy sigh>

TwentyChews Thu 22-Dec-16 14:46:30

Here you go. Took some attempts to get todays results - but ooohhh so worth it!

TwentyChews Thu 22-Dec-16 16:03:27

Just read some of the amazon reviews - there are definitely some fellow sporners on there - outstanding descriptions!

So jealous envy my mum gets the most incredible earwax but she won't let me anywhere near it.

The satisfaction from that massive one on the bottom left was indescribable.
