Water Works for Cerumen Impaction
If you don't have the time to obtain and instill Colace into an ear canal, as Michelle Lin, MD, recommended (“Colace for Ear Cerumen,” EMN. 2019;41:5; http://bit.ly/3831uSz), you only need to use body temperature water with repeated high-jet lavage to soften and remove a cerumen impaction. It works every time.
