Ever since she was little, Maria had a phobia of using Q-Tips. When Maria was nine years old, her mom had pushed one a little too far in her ear, slightly damaging her eardrum and causing a memorable amount of pain. That was all it took. After that, she wouldn’t let anyone or anything near her ears.
Twenty-five years later, Maria hadn’t once cleaned her ears. The result? Publicly noticeable amounts of wax buildup in both ears.
“I was so ashamed,” she confesses, “I knew they were gross, but I didn’t want to use Q-Tips—I was afraid I’d hurt myself. Plus, there was so much wax that I was afraid a Q-Tip would just push it further in.”
But the problem and shame was eating away at Maria. She refused to pull her hair up and expose her ears out of embarrassment. And there was another problem. It was also causing hearing problems. Sounds were becoming muffled in her left ear.
“It got to a point where I knew I had to do something,” she says.
One day, Maria was having lunch with her friend Stephanie at their favorite deli. Everything was going well, until Maria pushed her hair behind her ear and Stephanie laid eyes on the wax Maria had been successfully hiding.
“What is that!?” Stephanie said loudly. “Girl, don’t you ever clean your ears?”
Maria embarrassedly said no, and told her about her fear of Q-Tips.
“Q-Tips?” Stephanie said, overdramatically. “Who uses Q-Tips anymore? All they do is push the wax further into the ear. Everybody knows that. Go home and look up these things called Q-Grips. They actually pull the wax out. They’re so much better for you.”
Maria took it to heart, and immediately went home and ordered the Q-Grips.
After they arrived, Maria asked Stephanie to come over and help her. Maria didn’t trust herself to do it, and she was afraid it was going to be painful. After Stephanie was finished, Maria had a completely different viewpoint.
“I can’t believe I took so long to do something about it,” Maria says. “I feel like a completely different person. I can even hear better now! And I’m not embarrassed about pulling my hair back anymore. These things changed my life!”
But Q-Grips 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 the best part?
They don’t go too far into the ear. They’re designed so they don’t cause any damage or irritation. You’d have to be trying in order to hurt yourself with them.
So we ordered the Q-Grips in order to test them. Two days later, they were waiting on our doorstep.
The Q-Grip worked so smoothly. We were surprised at how gentle it was. It even tickled a little. We just twisted it right into our ears and pulled out the wax. One of the interns had actually used Q-Tips earlier that day, and the Q-Grip STILL pulled out wax. It was unbelievable!
And the feeling of cleanliness could not be beat. It actually felt like the ear was completely clean. It was such a great feeling!
Since trying the Q-Grips, this writer has been using them once a week. Q-Tips can’t even compare to the Q-Grips’ performance and ease of use. My ears have never felt cleaner.
If you’re still using Q-Tips, toss them in the garbage and order the Q-Grips. They’re just that good, plain and simple.
