LastSwab Reusable Cotton Swab
The LastSwab Reusable Cotton Swab: "Because there is no Planet B." Hear that, ocean-polluting and marine-life-skewering Q-Tips?
Like EEEARS, the LastSwab takes a typically one-use, disposable grooming product and adds some medical-grade silicone to it, creating a washable, multi-use, and far more eco-friendly version that does the same thing as its cotton counterpart. The difference between EEEARS and LastSwabs is the latter is useful for more than just ear cleaning. Sized and shaped like a full cotton swab, with a choice of standard and makeup tips, you can use a LastSwab to dig around in your ears, or dig around in your nose and mouth, or apply makeup and other powders, salves, lotions, and tinctures to any part of your body.
LastSwab soft-feel silicone tips wash in the sink with normal soap and water, after which you can tuck the swabs back into their included protective cases for storage or EDC.
Note that LastSwab, like your mama, advises you to "swab responsibly," so as not to puncture an eardrum or poke your eye out. (And for those with especially large vats of earwax hanging inside their canals, I'd recommend the Elephant Ear cleaner. And then maybe an Earwax Candle Kit.)
