Wicking Ear Plugs

I wear ear plugs all night. Every morning when I wake up, there's a small amount of itchy, icky, ear-waxy moisture in my ear canal.

Every morning I dream of this invention: What if there were ear plugs that — instead of trapping moisture in the ear — would actually draw it out?

It would like an an ordinary ear plug, only there would be some sort of material which would act to wick the fluid out of the ear canal (blue part in the illustration.)

These ear plugs would essentially clean your ear as you wore them.
