You can mix one part of white vinegar with two parts water

Fill canals and massage from outside

Then let shake head

Repeat twice daily

This should help a lot with bacterial and fungal infections

Okay?
And please let me know you received his- service is slow tonight

had read that but its said that vinegar burns and I should use apple vinegar

Nope

White vinegar will not burn

Have done this too many time to count :)

Make sure is 1 part mixed with 2 parts water

Works really well
