I clean once a week. I like Oticalm ear cleaner. Your vet can also recommend a good one for you.
Fill the ear canal with cleaner, massage the base of the ear, put a cotton ball (on these tiny ears I use 1/2 a cotton ball) in the ear and massage. Repeat the cotton ball until you get a clean dry one. For a really dirty ear, you can refill with cleaner. My dogs' ears stay quite clean, but if you need to you can use a q-tip for those folds and such near the enterance to the ear canal. Q-tips are somewhat abrasive so cotton balls are better for cleaning inside the ear.
