My ear became clogged last night. Before going to bed I used one of those rubber things that you typically use for cleaning out babies noses and filled a large cup with warm water a couple of times and forced the water into my ear. When I woke up, it was still clogged so I did the same thing with a couple more cups of warm water. Then I boiled some water and put a little bit into a cup, holding my ear over it. Then forced more water in and eventually a ton of wax came out and my ear was clear! It takes a little patience, but when it works its way loose, it's a miracle. I couldn't believe so much stuff could come out of such a small place. I don't know if this remedy works for congestion due to a cold, but it definately does for wax build-up.
