Yup. I actually use Japanese Qtips (very small - Daiso is a Japanese dollar store, there might be one in your area), and use it to clean the outer portion of the ear.
you only need a few drops down the ear canal, then you need to massage it down the canal, then your dog will shake it's head, then I wipe the excess fluid from around the ear so it doesn't get all over the hair.
For hair in the ear, just try your fingers, to get him used to it. just a couple of pulls, then give him praise or a treat.
