I use a mixture of half vinegar,half rubbing alcohol. The vinegar creates an acid environment to keep fugus at bay (a real problem if you just use non-steril water). The alcohol helps the fluid dry out to prevent swimmers ear. My Dr agrees with the mix.

I use a seringe I found at a craft store. It had a long curved tip that I cut short enough that I was sure it wouldn't be to long an puncture the drum.

If you have a severe case, you can use a softener first. Then draw the mixture into the seringe and with ear over sink, flush out the ear. Take care to not get mixture in your eye. Does smell, but have had much success with this method. Cheap too. Do before shower to reduce vinegar smell.

Thanks for sharing Mark.

It may help to warm vinegar + alcohol mixture a bit before using too.
