No No No talk about a bad idea. The fact that water is trapped inside the ear canal is due to impacted ear wax. A quick visit to your local doctor or medical clinic and a quick flush and the wax and the issue are resolved. Never use anything in your ears unless directed to do so by a licensed doctor. Alcohol in the ear canal can cause permanent damage to the ear drum and respective membranes in the ear responsible for balance and hearing.

No dont use alchohol in your ear as it damages the ear drum and may cause infections! The best thing to use is a gentle oil like almond oil, every night before you go to bed.
