I read the other reviews, and decided to irrigate with just water first, since it seemed like that was what set apart the positive reviews from the negative (other than the people who didn't realized that tubes are holes). It took half a mug of lukewarm water, and the bulb, testing for hearing between each squirt, but I can hear again. Quite frankly, the kit is worth it for the bulb if it ma ... Show Full Comment

Very good product. One day, I felt things were moving fast in front of me, then badly vomited. It was caused by too much ear wax blocked my left ear.

Must use the Kit!

When my Dr cleaned my ears, it was done in two ... Show Full Comment

My hearing was fine before using this product, but upon using it, my hearing has decreased. It feels like I have water in my ear and it isn't getting better. I won't use Debrox again.
