EVER wondered what it’s like to have your ears flushed out after a build-up of wax?
One TikTok user decided to film the process as a girl had her ear canal cleaned out and share it online for her followers to see – with the stomach-churning clip guaranteed to leave you feeling queasy.
One professional, known as @HearingSpecialists on the social media platform, was seen tackling an excessive build-up of wax, with huge clumps being removed at a time.
Using a specialised tool, they are able to tackle the inside of the ear and remove any build-up clogging up the ear canal using water pressure.
As the water flushes out the ear, wax continuously came out with it in large clumps and filtered out into a bowl underneath.
While some branded the video a “satisfying” watch, it’s fair to say most people were left a little grossed out by the entire process.
Hundreds commented on the video as it did the rounds on TikTok, with one person posting: “So gross, but I can’t stop watching.”
“Don’t watch whilst eating,” warned another, while a third posted: “I feel sick.”
One more grossed out viewer added: “How do scruff bags let it get this bad. I literally clean my ears everyday.”
Others were fascinated by just how much wax was removed as a result of the treatment, with one person teasing: “Damn, she can hear colours now.”
Not everyone was completely put off by the video, with one person sharing: “I really want this done,” and another insisting the process is worth it.
They posted: “I need to get this every few months… feels amazing after.”
One viewer quizzed: “Does it hurt?” with the professionals responding: “No can be a little uncomfortable, but not hurt.”
