get rid clogged ears

Valsalva Maneuver

You can easily get rid of clogged ears by performing the Valsalva maneuver. It will relieve stuffiness and pain in the ear.

Close your mouth and pinch your nostrils closed with your fingers, then take a deep breath.
Blow air out of your nose to regulate the air pressure. If done correctly, you will hear a slight popping sound which means the Eustachian tubes are open again.

Olive Oil

For clogged ears due to a buildup of wax inside the ears, you can use olive oil. Olive oil will help soften ear wax so you can easily remove it.

Gently warm some pure olive oil.
Use a dropper to put a few drops of the lukewarm olive oil in the affected ear.
Allow it to settle for 10 minutes so that the earwax becomes soft.
Keep your head sideways and remove the oil and ear wax with ear buds. Do this very gently so you don’t hurt the delicate organ

Alcohol and Apple Cider Vinegar

To destroy any kind of bacterial infection that may be causing clogged ears, you can use a combination of alcohol and apple cider vinegar.

Mix equal amounts of alcohol and apple cider vinegar.
Lie down on your side and use a dropper to put a few drops of this mixture in the affected ear.
To keep the mixture from spilling out, place a cotton ball in the ear and do not raise your head.
Rest for five to 10 minutes to allow the mixture to do its work.
Remove the earwax with an ear bud.
If the other ear is also clogged, repeat the process with the other ear.

Warm Compress

A warm compress is a very good natural treatment for clogged ears associated with colds or sinus congestion. The heat from a warm compress will help loosen congestion, unclog the ear and ease the pain.

Soak a washcloth in warm water, wring out the excess water and then hold the washcloth over the affected ear for five to 10 minutes. This will help to ease pain and promote fluid drainage.
Alternatively, you can wrap a hot water bottle in a thin towel and apply it to the clogged ear for five to 10 minutes to relieve the pressure and open up the clogged ear.
