I agree about the cardboard cotton swabs. However, Swisspers makes cotton swabs with the plastic sticks. Those are usually the ones I buy. They come in different colors as well.I used to love a product by Jergens of Aloe and Green Tea or maybe it was even Green Tea and Melon, it's been more than 20 years since it was discontinued.
You can only get Aloe and Cucumber now. It's nice but that Green Tea was fantastic. LOL, every person who used my washroom would comment on the sent of that lotion.
It's also like when they switched cotton swabs to wimpy cardboard sticks. Those things are useless. I now get the wood ones in huge quantities from Amazon. I also get them in a variety of lengths, so handy for various things!
Yes, the plastic ones can sometimes bend. But, for me, they're still a little better than the ones made of cardboard.Sorry Linda, I found the plastic ones just as wimpy as the cardboard ones.
It is MHO wood sticks were removed because clutzy mama's didn't know how to control themselves while cleaning baby's ears.
It all started when they abandoned Baby 101 in schools. Right along with Common Sense 101.
That's when the "sue the fast food industry for burning your tongue on hot coffee" became common.
Along with the warnings for sharp edges on serrated cutting pieces of rolls of waxed paper, foil, parchment, etc.
Yes, apparently the kid dropped a chicken nugget into her lap and burned her leg. So mom sued McD's and is now $800,000 richer.OMG - had never heard of that one! (nuggets)
McD should perhaps counter sue the mother for being such an unfit. Or call Social Services. LOL that would be a twist of karma!
