No dont use alchohol in your ear as it damages the ear drum and may cause infections! The best thing to use is a gentle oil like almond oil, every night before you go to bed.

Can you use rubbing alcohol to clean out your ear?

I would not recommend first using hyrdogen peroxide to loosen up any material that may be in the ear and then sparingly use the rubbing alcohol to kill any outer ear infection and dry out any liquid in the ear (rubbing alcohol evaporates at body temperature).
