I honestly don't know about solutions. When I give baths, I wash them. Between bathing, I just use a damp warm cotton ball.

I've diluted a little alcohol with water, I've used peroxide with a little water. I've even used witch hazel. All have done the job. When I was a groomer I would just use the ear cleaning solutions that the pet retail stores carry.

I second that. I get an ear cleaning solution from petmeds because it's convenient to get since I also have to purchase other supplies from there anyway...but peroxide with water worked just the same for me. My male has ear problems, easily prone to infections gotta keep em clean, especially uncropped ears. I can keep my youngest male and my female's ears clean using Macho's method but my oldest male requires his ears to be flushed with solution, it's really particular to your dog's needs.

Does anyone recommend the ear cleaning solutions from the pet stores over peroxide or other home remedies? We have pretty much tried everything. Even what the vet has given us hasn't seemed to work.

Her ears also seem to itch & she rubs her head against the rug on the floor. We try to keep them as clean as possible. But if we wash them too much, the ears get dry.

depends what kind of cleaning you need. routine maintenance / prevention? reoccurring infection? mites? yeast?
i like vinegar too. because is natural and mild. cheap and easy to find. but i live near a big horse ranch and the flies are SO obnoxious. vinegar actually attracts flies.
so now for weekly cleaning. i use Dickinson's witch hazel with a few drops of tea tree oil. the witch hazel does have a little alcohol but it's very mild and it shouldn't dry out her skin. you can always smear a tiny bit of aloe vera afterwards.
