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.
This batch has been horrible, constantly breaking them with little to no pressure, a lot of the bamboo is malformed as well, there must have been some serious implications at the jobsite for the quality of these to be this weak, might try again in a couple weeks
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.
