During Amy's sleep over, Cynde found ear wax candles and bought a set. As disgusting as they are, they really do clean out a clogged ear and Dylan said, "I can hear better. This is great." Of course, you look like a human birthday cake when they are in process, but they are worth the wait.
Many moons ago, my Aunt Bobbie introduced me to the candles and for a few years, they are what people got for Christmas. Those introduced to the Crandalls often found themselves lying on their side and being lit up.
The karma returned, however, when I was given a candle treatment myself. If you've never done it, I highly recommend it.
