Are there even good q-tips and bad q-tips? They're all the same aren't they?

I've bought this brand and store brand and I've found that q-tip brand holds up so much better than store brand!

some q-tips are softer than others and have different shape and durability but it's all just a personal preference.

I think there's bad q-tips. Some that I've used other than this brand just don't do anything for me 🙄. The cotton part is loose & doesn't stay intact very well.

I'm very picky about Q-tips. 😂 (weird, right?) I hate the kind that are plastic in the center, because they are too flimsy and bend when I try to use them. But whatever works for you; that's what matters! :)

I've had some qtip sticks snap in half before, like off brand ones.The cotton also seems to fall off the off brand ones.

They all vary because some fall apart easily and some are too raspy and can burn your ear a bit if you spin too much

There have been some cotton swab brands that leave cotton still in my ears after I clean and other brands that don't have enough cotton on the ends to help remove makeup. The qtip brand swabs are the perfect mix of the two!

Yes! Some cheaper, dollar store ones don't have enough cotton in the tips and feel like a plastic stick digging into your skin.

To be honest I believe there is considering what you want the qtip to do. If you want it to hold water and not fall apart for example.

There is just the right amount of cotton on the q-tips. Other generic brands tend to bend and don't quite do the job.

I don't like the ones that have plastic sticks. They bend too much. Some of the cheaper ones also have less cotton and dig my ear canal.

Well yes and no. Some of them are a lot rougher and break faster. They aren't as good quality. This might sound crazy but when cleaning up makeup or hard spots you don't want the swab to be too rough nor the handle to be loose and super fragile

I would yes there are good and bad q-tips, not only the cotton but the little rod you hold onto. there are some cheap q-tips with small cotton tips with weak rods that break while your using them. There are good q-tips that have softer and wider cotton tips and a stronger rod.

You might think that all q-tips are the same but honestly no if you go with cheap ones they arnt as durable. I know I'm my household a lot of complaints are when they are being used to clean out a ear they just kinda bend I know gross example but it's true! You get what you pay for and really the "name brand" of q-tips is not that much more cost wise

Store brands are usually really bendy and weak. Also, the cotton tends to come off easy. Q-Tip brand or Swispers is what I use.

In some q-tips the cotton unravels faster and gets icky right away. Others are bound better and would last longer
