So, I’m sure you’ve all seen the Wax Vac commercials. You know the ones, where they promise that you will never need another Q-tip in your entire life once you have their amazing product. I was mesmerized, lured, amazed–in short, I had to have one.
The next time Jackie and I were out, I convinced her to stop by the local CVS and we both bought one. I had her convinced that it would work. To her credit, she was doubtful, but I told her, “No, the magical TV box said it would work and they never, ever lie.” So, we took our purchases home and tried them out.
I used it on my ears…nothing. I tried them on my mom’s ears…nothing. I tried them on Cody’s ears…nothing. I even tried them on my dog’s ear…the dog ran away, barking. In short, the Wax Vac was a Wax Nothing. It was a waste of my ten dollars. How could the TV box lie to me?
I am now left with a piece of garbage that I’m going to keep just because it has a handy light on the end of it. You never know when you may need it to look under the couch. My Eos lip balms are always rolling under there and I’m lost without them.
