Fill the eyedropper with three percent hydrogen peroxide solution.
With your affected ear tipped up towards the ceiling, straighten the ear canal by pulling the earlobe up towards the face and away from the neck.
Place the eyedropper filled with peroxide solution at the opening of the ear and squeeze around five to ten drops of the solution.
Remain in this position for 15 to 30 minutes, allowing the peroxide to stay and soften the wax in your ear canal.
Place a cotton ball at the ear opening and sit up to allow the peroxide solution and softened ear wax to drain out of the ear canal.
Treat the other ear with the peroxide solution in the same way if required.
