How can excess ear wax be removed from the outside ear?

My ears drain wax at night. Therefore, the wax is stuck on my outside ear. I have tried oil and peroxide to remove it but it is stuck. I've scrubbed with soap and picking it off, the ears are sentive and get messed up. Is there an easier way?

One safer technique to get rid of ear wax is to use warmed oils like baby oil, olive oil, or mineral oil. You can also use half white vinegar and half rubbing alcohol solution to soften the wax. If using oil, it must be warm and place only a few drops into the ear as you lay on your side. Then let it sit for a moment and then just tilt your head to the other side to let it drain out.

Buy these ear wax scooper things. They work really well but I don't know where to get them because I got mine a long time ago.
