And by the way, you shouldn’t really be cleaning your ears with cotton swabs anyway. You could actually damage your eardrum because it’s way too easy to stick them in too far! Just a word to the wise. 😉 But now that you know what you shouldn’t be using Q-tips for, we’re going to tell you how you should be using them. I mean, if you have a baby you know you need cotton swabs in the diaper bag, but these little beauties are super handy for all kinds of things.
1. Clean Your Glasses
Sure, they gave you a cleaning cloth and maybe even some spray when you got your new pair, right? But with a cheap little cotton swab, you can clean out all those little nooks and crannies that collect dirt, dust, and eww….dead skin. Clean the nose pads, around those tiny screws, and in the crevice between the lenses and frame. Just make sure you use the right type cleaner made for eyeglasses.
