Make dog ear cleaning wipes for an easy way to clean your dog’s ears. Try these dog grooming wipes for an easy way to remove dirt and wax.

Pet care products can be really expensive to buy at the pet store. But, thankfully you can make some of them safely at home.

If you need a dog ear cleaner to remove wax, dirt, or yeast from your dog’s ears, these are the best dog ear cleaning wipes to use. Plus, they are super easy to make from things you probably already have on hand.

These wipes are gentle, so you can use them to clean your dog’s ears after playing outside. Or, you can use them to remove wax and help deal with yeast overgrowth. They really are multi-purpose. 

Dog earing cleaning wipes can be very good to keep your dog’s ears maintained. Some dog grooming wipes contain isopropyl alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. These can be very drying to your dog’s ears

If your pet has any type of existing infection, irritation, or health concerns, please speak to your veterinarian before using this. Home remedies work for many people. But, it’s important that you check with your vet before trying something new.

    I simply purchase a whole pack of ‘baby wipes’, No additives! This was recommended by our Vet and can be purchased for $1.00 at any ‘Dollar’ store.

    They are soft, larger and gentle & my index finger is just the right size for my adult Lab.

    Probably not as cheap to make as my dollar store purchase.
