95 out of 100 That's excellent in my book.

Tightness of cotton tip weave and it's adherence to the medium strength paper stick is good. Strength and Thickness of cotton strands used in the weave is good when compared to other top selling cotton swab brands. The packaging is fine, for oft times people place their cotton swabs in another container for convenience. There Are two things to be mindful of: the paper stick and the tightness of the swab tip weave. First, the strength of the swab's paper stick is adequate for the proper minimal pressure that one is supposed to use in hygiene routine and is fine for basic first-aid needs. But, if a swab stick must remain straight when exerting more pressure, like in using with crafts/detailing the car dash etc, this stick will bend. Second, the tightness of the cotton swab tip weave is good for the hygiene routine, but will not be consistent enough when one requires exact and unwavering support like with painting/on-point gluing etc. So, when you need a decently made, paper stick, good cotton swab, the Equate brand Cotton Swab two-pack of 500 each, is THE best value for the money. I have tried more than fifteen brands, and now make sure to always have a stock of Equate swabs in my restroom cupboard!!


Decent offering for the price

These equate cotton swabs will get the job done. There is plenty of cotton at the tip for my needs. I did take away two stars because unlike real Q-tips brand swabs the paper stick is NOT comparable in strength. The Equate brand stick frequently bends under pressure when cleaning my ears. I'll be trying to swab my ears after getting out of the shower and the stick will practically collapse under the pressure where as Q-tips brand offers a much better and stronger product. I reduced the stars for this Equate offering because it is not -- contrary to what the package says -- equivalent to name brand q-tips.


Good enough

Good enough. Swans aren't as thick as name brand, but they work. Just be careful not to bend the stick


Work as expected

Bought these for my husband to clean out his earwax. He's been using a couple a day the past several weeks. They work as expected.



Nothing like the Equate brand in plastic container in the store. Soon as you use these the cotton moves and is off the stick. Don't waste your money. Thought I was getting what's in the store. May be okay for crafts but NOT personal use.
