When doctors clean your ears, what do they do? Is there a name for the thing that they do? How does it work? I think I should try it out.

My doctor has this huge syringe looking tool, with a rubber piece at the end. He fills it up with warm water, and shoots into my ear, lots of pressure, feels kind of funny, and lets the overflow fall of the side into this little container. Then he shows me how much guck was in there, I gasp, and then he repeats with the other ear. When I come out, my hearing goes up 3 db
The best way to maintain clean ear canals is to use soap and warm water in the shower daily. This will prevent the need to have them flushed in the office. You can easily do this yourself and don't need any help. Remember, gentle pressure as you can rupture the TM.
