    Aside from the fact that I think "safety swab" is the most absurd name for a Q-tip ever, was there ever really any doubt that this is the best brand? It's like "Kleenex" versus "tissues": there is a good reason that people say "Q-tip," rather than "cotton swab" in everyday language--they're just the only brand that matters.
    Important facts about Q-tips:
    1) they, as previous reviewers have mentioned, have more cotton at the ends.
    2) said cotton tends not to end up stuck to everything other than the Q-tip, as happens with generic brands.
    3) MOST IMPORTANTLY: the stick of the Q-tip is FIRM, not folding at the mere sight of an ear canal like every store brand swab does. since most people seem to disobey Q-tip packaging's direct orders NOT to put them in their ears, I figure this information would have been more ubiquitously reviewed. but since it has not been, I'm happy to report that Q-tip brand swabs are up to whatever task, or ear canal, you care to give them.

    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

        Johnson & Johnson have always produced wonderful products. Q-tips are very versatile whether they are used for first aid, crafts, in the garage - yup, hubby uses them in the shop. Just a great, reliable product.

                        These are the best ear swabs. The other brands don't put enough cotton and hurt my ear. I always buy the non-plastic stick (It hurts my ear too!).

                        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.
