Sturdy sticks are really dependable when doing face painting, artwork, for ear cleaning or applying glue to small items. The cotton tips are of adequate thickness, well attached and don't fuzz up or fall off. One more reason I prefer them is because I'd noticed that on non-plastic brands, the stick part turned black when I dipped them in medical grade iodine to swab a scratch or insect bite. Must be a chemical reaction to whatever is used to make the other sticks white? Their cotton tips were OK. Just the papery stick part got black. Bleached composition maybe. At any rate, I prefer buying these plastic stick swabs which are also a great value for a 300 count pack and I intend to keep using them until the day comes when (hopefully) natural hemp fibers are the economic winner that replaces petro plastics.
Can't go wrong with this quality cotton swab. Great value for the price. So many uses. The typical cotton swab packaging you'd expect. It's a good basic product to have around, I use them so frequently for makeup. The size of the package is a deal. Good for all ages, as there are so many uses.
The one thing that makes or breaks cotton swabs for me is how sturdy the handles are. I hate putting one in my ear and it bend because of how cheaply made it is. These are sturdy enough and hold up well.
Good quality cotton swabs. It is strong and does not bend easily during use, yet the tips are soft and still manage to clean run-away make ups or itchy ear-holes.
These do get the job done, however they're plastic which I don't like. Not only plastic is bad for the environment, they seem to bend far easier. Wood-based swabs are more durable and better for the environment. I think I'll look for a different brand next time.
Finally, after several years of suffering with paper ear sticks, finally a rebirth with plastic because the handle does not bend. Rebirth.
it is of good quality and value, feels good to use
I like the fact that it doesn't break like the bamboo sticks
Qtips are very soft to use. Great for the price you get a lot of tips.
