Cotton swab

As the name suggests, cotton swabs consist of a thin rod and a mostly soft head, for example made of absorbent cotton. The material and the size of the sticks as well as the heads may vary.

Cotton swabs are primarily used to treat superficial wounds: Cleaning, sampling, applying substances and stopping bleeding. In addition, they find their use with ENT physicians, often to administer a substance as well.

In addition, the practical sticks are often used in cosmetics, for personal hygiene and for cleaning small parts.
