Pros: works fast, cleans out the ears wonderfully.
Cons: Somewhat expensive.
The Bottom Line: Excellent overall product, does exactly what it is meant to do and works great with children that don't like their ears touched.
About a year ago, my son was having some major issues with his ears, he was constantly tugging on them and I thought that he may have some sort of an ear infection. When I took him to the doctor to have it checked out, he apparently was having issues with some sort of a fluid buildup. The problem was that the doctor had some issues in regards to using Q-Tips in his ears, so rather than using the standard method that I had used as a child myself I was informed that we would have to use a liquid treatment for the best results. So, I was told to purchase a product called Murine Earigate.
Application Process The product itself is relatively simple to apply even with a smaller child, much easier than attempting to clean out an ear with a Q-Tip. I simply held his head with a towel, tilted his head so that the fluid could run out and sprayed the product into his ear. It made a slight spray into the ear with very low pressure and everything started to come back out. The buildup was cleared out somewhat so I went to the other ear and did the same process. I repeated the process a couple of times to ensure that I got everything out. My son of course was somewhat annoyed after the first ear because the liquid was still in there, so I simply took a Q-Tip and lightly dried it out for him.
Effectiveness After inspecting my son's ears after the application I noticed a major difference in the cleanliness of his ears. The buildup that he had was completely gone and he had absolutely no remaining issues. Obviously, I had to keep reapplying this product every other day until the issue was resolved, but for the most part it cleaned him out quite well and we didn't have any other issues after that. In fact, I now use it as a regular product for cleaning out his ears, because he is much easier to handle with this than he is with anything else.

Final Thoughts While the product is incredibly effective, I don't know if you really need to use it to replace your current method unless you are having difficulty cleaning out your ears. This is definitely a great solution for children that won't allow you to clean their ears, seniors, and maybe those with different disabilities or disorders that make it complicated to take care of their ear related issues. The product doesn't harm the ear drums and is substantially safer and easier than anything else on the market that I have seen thus far. Very effective, somewhat expensive at nearly $20, but it does last for quite some time.
