Another excellent method to soften earwax that has built up inside of the ear is to use mineral oil. To soften wax with mineral oil, you may want to consider making the following solution. Mineral oil and glycerin, when mixed together, work as a powerful softener and cleaner and is safe to use on the inside of the ear. Similar to the warm water method, use a syringe to insert the solution inside your ear. Again, make sure the syringe doesn't touch the inside of your ear.

Wait on your side for a few minutes, so the solution can do its work. Then rinse your ear with warm water and dry it. It may take a few treatments for the earwax to soften completely, so perform this treatment for a few days. If your earwax refuses to soften, it's time to call your doctor to try another method instead. However, once the wax does soften, your ear can take care of the rest. The new wax will be formed, and it will push the old wax out of the ear, clearing it right up.
