Meet the mimikaki: an ear wax cleaner from Japan to clean your ears without polluting the earth! “Mimikaki” literally means ear stick. This is a highly cultural practice in Japan. While cleaning your ears is kind of a personal thing for many of us, in Japan cleaning another’s ears is considered an act of affection or sign of intimacy. A husband lying down with his head on his wife’s lap having his ears cleaned is an image of domestic bliss in Japan. Asians have used ear picks for many years and they still use them to this day.
