Earwax, of all things, poses serious risk for hearing loss and cognitive decline. (Here's what you need to do...)
Maddy Taylor | Monday, September 13, 2021

I have to admit something, and it’s a little embarrassing...

You see, until recently, I had a problem with earwax. And not a “small” problem, either. It was a large, gross, disgusting problem.

You see, ever since I was little, I’ve never liked using Q-Tips. My mom pushed one too far into my ear when I was little, and the memory of that pain has stuck with me my entire life.

Well, recently, after years of putting it off, I finally tried using Q-Tips. I had to work up to it, but I finally used them. I have just one thing to say about that: Wrong Move!

Turns out, Q-Tips aren’t that great for actually removing the earwax from your ear. Instead, they just push it further in, packing it until it’s hardened and blocking your ear canal. Well, guess what happened to me?

That’s right, the earwax became so packed, I started having hearing problems! That’s great, to avoid something for almost 50 years, only to have it cause even worse problems when you finally do use it!

And, that’s not the only thing I was afraid of, either. In fact, I visited my doctor about the blockage, and he told me that there have been studies linking earwax buildup to dementia.

“The excessive amount of earwax can cause hearing loss or ringing in your ears. Some people experience vertigo, which increases the risk of falling. Right now, we see some correlation between hearing loss and cognitive decline and dementia.”

What? How? I couldn’t believe it...

Apparently, since the inner ear is responsible for such important things as balance and hearing, the brain becomes overtaxed when trying to compensate for impacted eardrums. Now, this really hit home...

It hit home because my mother has been struggling with dementia for the past few years, and it’s been painful for the whole family.

My doctor told me that it's especially important for the elderly to have earwax removed regularly. Too often, though, earwax in the elderly goes unnoticed, but its one of the most common reasons people have hearing-related problems.

I look at my own kids, and think that there’s no way I would ever want to do that to them. So, I asked the doctor what my options were. And, it turns out, they were kind of limited...

Basically, he recommended that I try one of those ear-cleaning kits, with the saline water that you pump into your ears. The trouble was, I’d already tried that!

In fact, I’d already tried everything! Sprays, pumps, Q-Tips, but nothing was helping with the impacted earwax. So, I asked the doctor if he could do anything. Well, it turned out he could, but at a cost...

You see, since it was considered an elective procedure, my insurance wouldn’t cover it. So, I’d have to pay hundred out of my own pocket. Well, I don’t just have that kind of money laying around. And, it’s silly, but I was nearly in tears talking to the doctor as it seemed like my options had run out. Well, then something amazing happened...

My doctor, empathizing with my situation, told me about these things called Q-Grips. Instead of pushing the wax into the inner ear, like a Q-Tip, they grip it and pull it out.

I couldn’t believe it. These Q-Grips sounded like exactly what I needed. But, I wanted to do a little more research.

What are Q-Grips?

Turns out, they’re basically the ideal solution for removing ear wax. I did look at my box of Q-Tips when I got home, and my doctor was right—It says right there on the box, “Do Not Insert Into Ear Canal.” When you’re using Q-Tips, you’re just pushing the wax further into the ear, creating more blockage. They can even cause ear infections.

But the Q-Grips are actually designed for ear wax removal. They work like a soft corkscrew. You just twist the flexible, soft ends into the ear and then pull the wax out. And, when you’re done, the disposable head pops off and into the garbage can with the press of a button.

And, my favorite part is: They don’t go too far into the ear. They’re designed so they won’t cause any damage or irritation.

Everybody Seems To Be Getting In On This Trend

Ever since Q-Grips have been introduced, more and more people have been ditching their old cotton swabs and choosing a better way to clean your ears. That’s because, even though they knew using old cotton swabs was just compacting the wax and making the problem worse, it was the only thing to do...

But now, people are switching over to the innovative product that grips and pulls the earwax right out of your ear.

Millions of people are avoiding hearing ear blockage, hearing loss and infection simply by switching over to Q-Grips...

But… Is it Really Worth All This Hype?

Since its debut, Q-Grips has been SELLING OUT just about as soon as it gets in stock... it’s become that popular.

And, this is all due to the amazing reviews and people sharing on social media, because it hasn’t even been advertised to the public yet! It’s all because of word of mouth...

QGrips has easily developed a cult following. Here are some customer reviews:
"I have a bad habit to pick the ear wax every two or three days with cotton swabs. Though I know it is bad, I can't control myself. When I feel aches inside my ears, I do it. When I bought this cute set of ear wax remover, Qgrips is professional, durable and easy to clean. They are what I am looking for."
- Harold Torres
"I'm a musician and sometime my ears clog up with wax and I can't hear the monitors or use earbuds. For years I've been trying liquid solutions, laying on the bed upside down. This Qgrips removed it within seconds. It doesn't go as deep as my doctor does when he can see inside... but it pulls it out within it's safe area and it soft and painless. Great idea that works!"
- Frank Jackson
"The silicone tips are soft and do not hurt my ears, just the right size to do the job and I was able to get quite a lot earwax out without getting too far and injuring my eardrum, or even poking the wax farther into my ear. Will recommmend this ear cleaner to my family and friends."
- Dorothy Collins
"I got these for my dad, who has excessive ear wax and is starting to show some signs of dementia. He has said he feels much more comfortable after using it and I can definitely tell that his hearing and awareness has improved."
- Tina Cooper
I wanted to get a professional’s opinion on the effectiveness of QGrips, so I spoke with ear, nose and throat doctor, Dr. Richard Osborn, to see if the hype was justified. Here’s his take:

“Most people don’t know that the way we were all taught to clean our ears growing up is wrong. Because they see some wax on their cotton swab, they think they’re getting it out of the ear. But, this is actually wrong. What’s really happening is they’re pushing the wax further into the ear, which can cause discomfort, hearing loss, infection or a ringing sensation in the ear.

Q-Grips is the best product I’ve seen that safely and effectively removes the bulk of the earwax without causing any damage. I recommend it to all my patients because, quite simply, it’s the best ear cleaning tool you can use, period.

- Dr. Richard Osborn, Otolaryngologist

After Dr. Osborn’s endorsement, I was sold and needed to get Q-Grips for myself and my mother.

I went online (Q-Grips aren’t sold in stores yet) and ordered one. (They currently have a buy 1 get 1 free deal, so it was perfect!)

A couple days later, it was waiting for me in the mail.

The Q-Grips worked so smoothly. I just twisted it right into my ear and it easily broke up the buildup of wax. It took a few passes, but I finally got to the point where I wasn’t pulling out any more wax.

(And, I have to be honest with you, I did get some enjoyment out of it. It’s like how some people like popping pimples, I guess. It felt amazing to get all that stuff out…)

But the greatest reward was seeing what happened when my mother used it. The difference before and after was night and day. Finally, she could hear again! There was no ringing in her ear, and she said it didn’t feel like the world was being muffled! For the first time in a while, she didn’t have to struggle to hear the birds outside!

Not only did it improve her hearing, but over the course of the next few days, I could see an almost immediate impact on how her mind and memory seemed to be sharper and more alert. Who knew that something as simple as cleaning out earwax could have such a profound improvement on my mother’s hearing and memory!

Now, how much does it cost? Is it worth the price?

Q-Grips currently sell for $40. At first, I thought the price was a bit steep. I mean, $40 for an ear cleaner? But, after seeing how well it worked with my mother and then using it for myself, I’ve completely changed my tune...

First of all, these things clean my ear better than any cotton swabs I’ve ever used. I was actually surprised by how much wax I pulled out of my own ear! But, it turns out, I had only ever just been pushing the wax further in when using cotton swabs…

Plus, I’ve had tinnitus for the past few years. You know, it’s a constant ringing in your ears. Very annoying. Well, after using the Q-Grips, I no longer have that annoying ringing! So, not only do I feel like a kid again, but Q-Grips actually improved my hearing!

But most of all, the positive effect that it’s had on my elderly mom made the investment in Q-Grips worth it a million times over. You can’t put a price on helping your loved ones, but if I had to, I would have spent my life savings just to see the benefits my mother has gotten from using Q-Grips.

When you take all of that into consideration, the $40 is absolutely well worth the price.

Q-Grips’ website is currently offering a 2-for-1 deal.

Q-Grips’ official website is doing a buy one get one sale for the next 24 hours. After seeing that, I have to let you know, that everybody who uses Q-Tips should immediately toss them in the garbage and order the Q-Grips, they’re just that good. Take it from me, using them is one of the best feelings in the world.

Wow! after multiple doctors visits to have my son’s ears cleaned we purchased this ear cleaner to try it ourselves. You have to be very careful to not place the tool in too deep but it easily scoops up ear wax close to the outer ear.

Great product, better than Q-Tips that push wax further into the ear. Sterilize with alcohol and they will last. I use these on my kids and it keeps them from having a doctor pull wax painfully when it builds up.

These have been wonderful for my elderly father. I've noticed after getting this for him and using it, he has been able to remember smaller details more easily and doesn't struggle in his day to day activities.

This type of tool should be a must have for all households. I didn't even know that cotton swabs had a warning not to insert them in your ear on the box. My family members seem a bit skeptical to use it probably out of fear but it does the job as advertised. I consider this a very good purchase.

I guess I make a lot of earwax, and it always felt like q-tips were just making things worse. I had tried some other solutions like rinses but those seemed temporary. The Q-Grips are a welcome solution and work great!

This earwax remover totally saved me a trip to the doctor! I had some earwax buildup I think from moving to a more dry and arid state. I made the rookie mistake of using cotton q-tips and I think I pushed the wax into my ear! I seriously couldn't hear for days. Q-Grips was the best thing I've ever tried.

I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and it works great! It’s a bit different than using cotton swabs so there’s a learning curb, such as how deep to go in the ear. But it does get a lot of wax out and I don’t feel wasteful using cotton swabs every day! I'll have to get some for my mother who has hearing loss and dementia and this product could work wonders for her.

Before purchase this product I was constantly having ear infections because I tried so hard to clean my ears with the Q tips... I am glad I finally found this product now I can clean my ears without getting that horrible ear infection.

Ear wax is often a reason for poorer hearing so I searched for a solution. This tool was delivered just as promised in a very timely manner. The quality is outstanding despite its low price and does the job wonderfully.
