Comment: I know that cleaning

(See in situ)

I know that cleaning

each ear canal GENTLY with a Q-tip wetted with some peroxide is a great preventative with common colds.

Daily, or in AM and PM before bed. Kinda risky though! Be careful. Obviously NOT something younger kids should do.

One must be sure cotton is tightly wound on the stick, and be aware of the direction in which it is wound. Turn in ear canal in the correct direction as to not unwind or loosen cotton. Don't go back and forth or scrub!

I did this for about 4 years and never got ill (I used to get at least one cold every year.). Then I sorta got lazy and stopped. Then I had colds again. D'OH!
