I've been using Q-Tips for decades and the quality is consistent. I mainly use to dry the nooks and crannies of my outer ears after a shower (not inside the ear canal which is dangerous). If you need a cotton swab, this brand is great. There may be something cheaper but with this brand, the quality is consistent. There are also safety swaps for babies with bigger puffs that I use for my cats' ears as needed.

As others have mentioned, these Q-tips used to be the very best with the softest, most cushiony tip. I have long refused to buy any other kind,especially generic brands. Until now, that is!Manufacturers are ruining their products by cutting the quality,size, thickness,you name it! They used to compete for our business by offering the softest,thickest products they could make. Now, their products no longer function for their intended purpose,whether it be Q-tips,facial tissues or zip lock type bags. Because they have all done it, we consumers have no where to turn for decent products. What happened to all the American "know how"? I'll just use the least expensive brand because they are all the same now,TERRIBLE!No longer brand loyal in Minnesota

    Comments about Q-tips Cotton Swabs, 500 ea:

    For over 50 years I have faithfully used Q-tips, but more and more they give less and less cotton, so when you use it after a shower in your ears, it hurts as bad as the no name cotton tips out there. It is Junk, there is no more fat cottony head, so wipe your eyes, or clean or ears or do anything with. I will NO LONGER use Q-TIP.

          What you would expect from the Q-Tip brand. Preferred due to right amount of cotton on the tip. Always the right choice for cleaning ears or fingernails.

                I've been buying Q-tips brand for many years. The other brands are not as effective mainly because the body is made of plastic and bend as you try to maneuver the swab and have less cotton at the tip.

                    Q-Tips cotton swabs are well-made cotton swabs good for lots of purposes. They have been around forever, so I'm sure everyone has multiple uses for them. They are always a great value.

                            This has fallen apart on me all the time. The cotton will just stay inside my ear, which I have had get it out and was totally scared. This shouldn't happen. Other than that, it's always somewhat fuzzy and breaks apart. I don't understand why people have been giving 5 stars. This product is horrible! The cotton always falls off the stick. Also, the cotton portion will become somewhat messy and fuzzy. Not intact anymore. I switched to Johnson & Johnson, never fails, never fuzzes and never falls off the stick!! Q-tip manufactures horrible products!

                            Q-tips Cotton Swabs

                             – Trust the quality of Q-tips Cotton Swabs, the first brand in essential personal care. Every detail of their construction has been carefully considered for maximum utility, strength and safety. The tips are made of pure 100% cotton – and Q-tips have more cotton from the end of the stick to the top of the swab than any other brand on the market – carefully secured to the end with a special adhesive. The paper stick is firm enough when it needs to be, but with just enough "give" to bend gently under pressure.

                            So Many Uses



                            The first thing that comes to everyone's mind, of course, is to gently clean the folds of the ear - but that's only the beginning of the ways you can use these versatile swabs! They make a great alternative to a make-up brush: use them to touch up the edge of blush or highlight cheekbones. Fill in brows after plucking by using the cotton swabs to brush on eye pencil or shadow. They can help you get that last little bit of make-up out of the bottle so you don't waste any. The precision tips can help you with nail polish, define lip lines and feather your eye make-up just right. Use one to accurately apply acne medicine to blemishes, then use another to apply cover-up for a smooth, even look. And don't forget the uses around the house for cleaning and even arts and crafts. Ever since they were invented in 1923, cotton swabs from Q-tips have offered quality for every household.
