This is really weird. In China, people go to the teahouse and have their ears cleaned. You pay a man $3.00 and he puts rusty metal sticks in your ear and cleans out the wax. Then he uses a tuning fork and puts it next to your ear. Our Chinese guide said that this makes you hear better. My mom said to leave this cleaning to an ear doctor. My uncle Matt and Grandpa Bill had their ears cleaned. Uncle Matt had a lot of ear wax! They also clean ears at the theater.
