Salt solutions are a great way to keep your ears from becoming infected, but if they do become infected we recommend going to see a professional. They will better help diagnose the issue. Salt water helps out tremendously, but it is not the save all cure all.
Salt Water Recipe for Stretched Ears
- 1/4 teaspoon fine grain non-iodized sea salt to 1 cup warm and clean water.
How To Soak Your Stretched Ears
Think of preparing the solution for your stretched ears the same as you would prepare a cup of tea. Use the same kind of mug you would for tea. Maybe not the actual cup though. Because putting a pussy ear in the same cup you drink out of might be kinda gross. To each their own I guess.
Mix 1/4 teaspoon into your 1 cup of boiling water. Stir the solution with a clean metal spoon (not one you just used in your cereal). Make sure all the salt has dissolved. Allow the solution to cool down (just like you would your tea). You can then submerge your freshly stretched ear in the glass for a good 5 minutes. After 5 minutes you can then rinse your stretched ear in cold water.
Keeping your newly stretched ear clean is extremely important. Do it correctly. A salt solution is a great way to keep your ears clean.
