    I would say ear wax normally either falls out or people pick it! Expelled is possible but a little too formal for this particular situation.

    "Gets away by washing" does not sound natural. Your original sentence is much better. The verb "get" is a multi-purpose verb that is used in many different ways. In this example it could be replaced by "is".
