I do mine with a cotton bud, even though everybody says you're not supposed to. I don't know how they clean their ears.

I've always cleaned my ears with q-tips/cotton buds, never had a problem. I always try to "pull/scrape" the wax out, and make no contact when pushing the q-tip back in. That way I'm not just pushing and spreading the wax all over in there. I also use ear candles which essentially suck ear wax out of your ear. I use them about twice a year. Basically, you lay on your side, put one end in your ear, and light the other end with a lighter. Very simple, and very effective! Look them up!0

You're not supposed to clean them, the wax is there for a reason, it'll dry up and fall out. But as I have small ear canals I get my ears cleaned annually by suction. It's not the most pleasant experience, but if I don't get it my ears get blocked up and it hurts my ear drums.0
