You only risk damage if you poke it deep in your ear. If you do it correctly then you'll have no problems. I like to use a spray ear cleaner


Who the heck cuts onions like that?!

The problem with cotton buds/Q-Tips is that if you use it improperly, you can push the wax further down the ear canal and that mess will harden and you will probably need a doctor to flush it out with hydrogen peroxide blend or mineral oil.  Or you might accidentally puncture your ear drum if you push it down too deep, or the tip would break off.

Just don't use those raggedy off brand cotton swabs. Cotton will stay put.

When I was a kid I punctured my ear drum using a Q-Tip. It hurt like a Mofo

if you hit the tympanic membrane (i think you'd have to pull your ear back and up to reach that though because the canal is curved.. then yes, you can damage your ear. 

plus q-tips for the most part just push things in farther.. 
feels lovely though

One time I had to give an ear lavage to a lady who had so much ear wax pacted deep inside that she could
Barely hear...she was already old...once it started flowing so much damn wax came pouring out...be careful with your ears.

just use a bit of peroxide to clean out your ears.
pour a capful into the canal, lay on your side, ear parallel to the ceiling and wait 10-15 min
sit up and let the liquid run out of the ear onto an old towel
repeat for other ear
make sure both ears are completely dry afterwards

I'm scared to put peroxide in my ears. I use it on the swab around the surface though. 
I don't like to clean wax out my ears because I'm always scared to damage my eardrum. But I still clean my ears about twice a week. 

Once I couldn't hear out of one ear, and it got worse and worse. Went to the ER and the Dr put a huge syringe in my ear and flushed it out. Both of them. I had wax stuck in my ear from using the q-tip. It pushed the wax further down. I really thought i was going deaf. But after the flush I heard like never before. Omg my hearing was amazzzzing. I could hear cars from blocks away.
