In brief: Peroxide drops

Peroxide drops can help loosen ear wax so that it will come out easier. There are commercially available kits at walgreens etc.
If this doesn't help see a doc to get the ears cleaned.

In brief: Ear Lavage

An ear lavage is a quick, safe, and effective way to clear out ear wax.
It can be done in most doctor's offices. It involves a gentle stream of saline possible with hydrogen peroxide into the ear which flushes out the wax. Takes about 5 minutes.
