Having poor hearing, I have my ears checked often. I'm always fighting problems with ear wax. My new doctor finally told me if you are going to use Qtips, do it often and dip them in peroxide before using. Leaving that trace of peroxide in the ear will help keep the ear wax soft. It sure has saved me many doctor visits since she shared this tip with me, hope it helps someone else.
My son gets a lot of wax build up in his ear, so I use these home made drops which work great. Dissolve 1/2 teaspoonful of baking soda in 2 ounces of warm water. Put into a dropper bottle and shake well before using. Use 2 drops in the ear twice a day. Use for a week and discard. It does great at dissolving excess ear wax.

Here are questions related to Remedies for Ear Wax Buildup.
Are there any home remedies out there for ear infections or ear wax removal? My son and husband both were born with the Pit Syndrome, that is the cleft lip and cleft palate and pits on the lip or tongue. The pits indicate that that person is carrying the gene to pass on the trait. Any way, both husband and son are deaf in their left ears due to the cleft palate and both always seem to have ear infections in this ear. Does anyone have any remedies for blocked ears or wax removal? Our son lives in Florida and is soon to be 40 and is always having problems with ear infections. We are interested in something other than going to the doctor for antibiotics, as our son has no medical insurance. Please I really need the help.with this problem.
