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.

          Since wood Q-tips went off the market, wood stick Cotton Swabs are the only product like it. It's not available in local drugstores, so I'm happy to be able to get it from Drugstore.com. Local drugstores only stock cardboard stick cotton swabs which hurt one's ears. I can't use them.

              I use these to clean hard-to-reach areas such as my sliding door tracks. Regular cotton swabs have flexible sticks that bend too much, especially when damp. I can dip these in cleaner and they'll clean out the door tracks without them bending and becoming useless.

                        I have used hard swabs all my life and they are so much safer to use becasue you can control them unlike paper qtips.

                        I have chronic ear infections and my ears drain and itch a LOT! Woodstick cotton swabs are the only q-tips I like to use. Cleaning around the ear can be delicate and the wood sticks give me more assurance I won't make any mistakes. I wasn't happy with the local grocery and drug stores when they took them off the shelves! I'm so glad that drugstore.com gives me the option of buying them online.
