I like the wood sticks very much and they are not available elsewhere. I have used these all my life. Now my Seeing Eye guide dog has chronic ear infections so I have to use them almost daily. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH COTTON ON THE TIPS! Sometimes, you can just feel the sharp edge of the wooden stick and that is dangerous and uncomfortable. I have contacted you several times about this problem but no change has been made. I will still buy them from you, but I think you should add a little more padding to the tips. Those with plastic or paper sticks have much more padding. Thank you.

I use cotton-tipped swabs for inumerable things - in applying makeup, cleaning very small things or tight areas, applying medication, personal hygiene, in arts & crafts - they are almost indisposable in our household. The wooden sticks are so much better than the plastic or cardboard ones because they are firm & don't break or bend under pressure. However, the Drugstore's in-house brand are so skimpy on the cotton that you wind up using 3 or 4 when with Q-Tip brand you would use only one.

      We grew up with wooden stick Q-tips, and love them. They don't bend like paper ones do. Not many companies are making wooden sticks anymore because they are concerned about people being able to be too forceful while cleaning their ears, but that is not our concern, and we are delighted to find them on your site.

            My friend wanted this product and couldn't find them anywhere in the off-line world, so I ordered them for him, and he got them fast, and were cheaper than he remembers, when he got them last.

                Comments about drugstore.com Cotton Swabs, Wood Sticks, 125 ea:

                Drugstore.com began white labeling these wooden cotton swabs when Johnson & Johnson stopped manufacturing their version. At first, I was happy that Drugstore.com stepped into the void and provided their own version.

                But these cotton swabs are very poorly made. Every single swab has one end that unravels with the gentlest of pressure. And in my experience, the wooden stick snaps in half or shears off frequently. They are a very inferior product and no real substitute for the J&J swabs. PIt's great that Drugstore.com was responsive to customer requests for the product. But this is not doing the job.

                Drugstore.com: find another supplier with a better product for you to white label. You should not have put your name on this.

                      Qtips with sticks are hard to find, but well worth the price to have around. Sometimes you just need that little bit of extra strength.
