Use with caution

I have to use Q-tips cotton swabs after a shower because I hate that feeling of having water in my ears. But what I hate even more is when I get a faulty one that's more "Q" swab than "tip" cotton. And I don't realize this until I've already jammed it in my ear, which the package clearly warns not to do. Ouch.

Maybe I should splurge on the name-brand ones next time.

I'm no doctor, but what is up with the HUGE warning on those. tipless Q's aside, what is the big deal with a little gentle cleaning?

I hate when that happens.

I love the feeling of putting a qtip in my ear, but I've definitely done the banging it against my brain once too often.

Zounds! I hate generic swabs too! The less cotton on the stick doesn't bother me half as much as the stick being bendy. I need a sturdy stick!

(you won't hear me repeat that ever again)

I quite often stab my brain/ ear drum with the non Qtip brand. Every morning it just ends up being a bloody mess of ear and brain matter... My head hurts. Then I recovered from my doctor induced coma and the doctor said get the Qtip brand and you will not have this problem. My words of advice get the Qtip brand. Don’t end up like me.

BER (I think)
