To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These Q-tips seem slightly shorter than those I buy in a store, like a Walgreens. When using them, it is easy for the wooden portion to snap into two pieces. I wouldn't buy these again. I would not use them for baby or child care. Because they are wooden, I thought they would be stronger. Not so.
I bought these to try & see how they compare to Q-tips. Not very well. Somewhat cheaper but not a good buy. So I am still looking for a fuller, kinder replacement at a good price. I hate to be at the mercy of one vendor.i
I purchased these because my supplier keeps raising the price on the ones I normally order. I found these, it was a large quantity and I thought I'd give them a try. They were not good, they had a weird smell to them like they were produced or stored with something that smelled funky. I buy wooded swabs because the have more rigidity, but not these swabs they were limp as a noodle, I thew the whole bag in the trash and have since ordered the ones I normally buy.
I thought I was going the more environmentally friendly, biodegradable route with this purchase, but ultimately I should have stuck with normal swabs. On more than one occasion, the tip has come off when I use a swab to clean the outer area of my ear. The stick has also snapped a couple of times during use. Fairly disconcerting, though I have adapted to what I understand the swabs limitations are, but I have hundreds of these to work through now and will not buy again.
