swimmer's ear prevention

After swimming, squirt a mixture of 1/2 rubbing alcohol and 1/2 distilled white vinegar into little (or big) ears. This restores natural pH balance and the alcohol dries up any water in the ear canal. I put my mixture in an empty travel sized contact solution bottle, and removed the label and wrote in huge red letters on the bottle what it was. Can you imagine if I mistakenly put that on my contacts? OMG.

  1. its good in dog ears too! especially dogs with floppy ears because their
    pinna (the floppy part of their ears) hangs over their inner ear preventing the inside from drying out. vizslas can be prone to swimmers ear infections and this helps!
