At times, if you feel as though your ears are clogged, it may be because the wax inside has hardened. If that's the case, the new wax your ear is producing cannot effectively push the old wax out of the ear. Hence, a buildup of earwax is formed. An easy and safe method to help your ears with their own cleaning process is the use of bulb syringe with warm water. By laying down on your side, you can take the syringe and carefully apply warm water within your ear. You should have a towel nearby to help with any drips that may occur, as well as to clean up the mess.

You should also do what you can to make sure you don't touch the bulb or syringe to your ear, especially your inner ear. Since it takes time for the wax to soften, lay on your side for a few minutes with the water in your ear. Afterward, rinse the water out and dry your ear with a soft towel.
