8. Garlic


Garlic is another great treatment to dislodge fluid in the ear. Plus, garlic has antibacterial properties that help prevent ear infection as well as reduce pain.

  1. Press a few garlic cloves to extract the juice.
  2. Put two or three drops of garlic juice in the affected ear.
  3. Wait for one minute, and then blow dry the ear from about 12 inches away from the head. (See Blow Dryer remedy above)

10. Olive Oil

Olive oil is a great remedy to facilitate the flow of fluid trapped in the ear. Also, its antiseptic properties will reduce the risk of ear infection.

  1. Slightly warm some olive oil in a small bowl.
  2. Using a dropper, a few drops of warm olive oil in the ear.
  3. Allow it to settle for 10 minutes.
  4. Go, turn your head sideways and remove the oil as well as the fluid with a soft ear bud.

Putting two to three drops of olive oil in each ear before going for swimming will lubricate the tissues lining the ear canal and help prevent water from getting trapped in the ears.

If none of these tips work and you still have fluid in ear, consult a doctor to avoid further complications.

  1. Number 2 worked my first try but for my brother it didn’t so I would try all of the methods before you give up my brother went through all of them till it got out

    1. It didnt work for me. I put a little bit of olive oil in my ear and then put cotten wool in it. I lay with my affected ear up for around ten minutes. The olive oil dissovles the wax which traps the water.

  2. One of these methods worked awesomely for me!! Now I am relieved from the discomfort I was feeling with my ear and the water. The one that really helped is the Hydrogen Peroxide one. But instead of Hydrogen Peroxide I used water because I couldn’t find our Hydrogen Peroxide…

  3. I had water in my ear for 3 months! Tried everything even went to the doc who prescribed pills and nothing. Then read the first comment on here (after trying the others) and that one worked! Cannot tell you how grateful I am to not have that crackling sound in my ear anymore every time I move my jaw! Genius

  4. Hey when ever water got into my ear all I did was put some pour water in about 2-3 drops then I leave it there for about 10 seconds then I tilt my head to the side and shook it a bit then the water just fell right out of this does not work try reapiting over and over Again until you finally get the water out

  5. I tried one of the first remedies here – the vacuum one – which didn’t work. Then after reading the comment and responses about filling the ear with water, I tried it too. It worked the second time I did it. So relieved! Thanks for posting.

  6. Had water stuck in my ear for 5 days. Used the palm of my hand as a vacum and nothing came out, but I can hear properly again!! Everything seems so loud, thank you 🙂 xx

  7. Palm trick worked for me right after seeing your comments! 😀 Suction thing is scientific and worked in seconds!

  8. Thank you so much i had both of my ears like that for about 5 hours and it maked me have a lot of headaches, used this methob and whjen the water dried, the water were gone
