Purple Stuff - Ear Cleaning
This may sound like a totally stupid question, but I was trying to buy the ingredients to make the purple ear cleaning solution that so many swear by:
16 oz. bottle isopropyl alcohol (or witch hazel)
4 tablespoons Boric Acid Powder
16 drops Gentian Violet 1% Solution
I went to Walgreens, and they had the Genetian Violet solution. However, when I asked the pharmacist where to find the boric acid powder, he said look on the insecticide aisle - for boric acid used to get rid of roaches.
So, my question is: do different types of boric acid exist (like one for first aid, one for insecticide, etc.)?
Thanks in advance for your help.
