20- I use q tips as well, I use them nearly every day actually. I don't know how to get clean ears without them quite honestly. However, Q tips aren't good, so use with caution OP.

It's actually best to just leave the earwax there. It has a function. It protects the ear canal from infection and other things. So removing it isn't really "cleaning" your ears, the earwax does that for you.

Yeah, but it can build up too much and affect hearing too. That and when a doctor looks in your ear, it's a bit embarrasing when you get his medical instrument covered in wax.

It usually only builds up if you produce too I much wax, like if you are sick, and if you are using a Q-tip, you can pack the earwax in and reduce your hearing, too. And the doctor shouldn't care, they throw away the tips of the thing they use to look in your ear.
