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.

          I need to use the wooden swabs to relieve tonsiloliths in my throat. The normal swabs bend and are ineffective. I am so glad that someone still makes wooden cotton swabs.

            Good product, but there is not enough cotton on the tip. Q-Tip brand has too much cotton, whilst this has too little. Otherwise, I like the product.

                    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.
