A pharmacist told me to mix half white distilled vinegar with half rubbing alcohol. I dip a Qtip in it and clean my ears 2 to 3 times a day. The problem is solved in 1 to 3 days.

Hair Dryer cure

If you have a hair dryer set it to warm. Blow it in your infected ear and it should evaporate the water.

Salt Pillow for Swimmers Ear

When I was little I would go to the park pool all day and come home with an ear ache. My Grandmother took about 1/2 cup of regular table salt and sewed it up in a clean white cloth making a pillow. She would warm the salt pillow up in a frying pan and have me lie down with my ear on the pillow. The combination of the warmth and the salt drew out the water and relieved my ear ache.

Equal Parts Rubbing Alcohol and Water

Mix equal parts of rubbing alchohol and water. Put a few drops in your ear, wait until you feel the water "pop", tilt your head, and problem solved! It works great!

Bye-Bye swimmer's ear!

Being a swimmer I think that the best way to treat swimmers ear is to use ear wax remover overnight and then put in something called'water remover' that will remove the swimmers ear in less than 3 days.!.

Onion Juice

Get help from another person for this one.....Cut an onion in half, warm it up in the microwave... Have the person with the bad ear lay down so the infected ear is facing up. Your helper squeezes the warm onion juice into your ear. Use about 4 drops of onion juice to do the trick. The ear will feel better within minutes. Your ear should clear up once you sit back up and the onion juice runs out of your ear. If doesn't work the first try do again. My husband got swimmers ear and he couldn't get the water to come out for nothing. Then it turned into an infection. His Aunt told us about this little trick. It worked great!!

alcohol/ apple cider vinegar

this is really a preventative. after swimming, fill ear canal with a solution of 50% alcohol and 50% apple cider vinegar then empty it out. This works really, really well. I used to get swimmers ear from just showering and this completely prevents it.

Just A Drop

Whenever I get Swimmer's Ear, use a dropper and drop just a drop of Alcohol in the ear you have it in. If you don't have a dropper you can drain a square of tissue in the alcohol and squeeze a drop out. It works for me!
