Question of the day

What are some the ways you use Q-Tips?

This post was inspired by me asking my mom where her Q-tips were and she said she didn’t have any and I thought to myself, “how can you not have any of those?” I use them for so many things. I was changing her smoke alarm batteries and wanted to clean out the slots the batteries sit in with one.

Am I alone or do you have many uses for them?

    clean ears, fix makeup smudges, fix painted toe nail mess ups. I guess thats all I can come up with for now

    I don’t own any either. If I did, I guess I would find some uses for them.

    When I was younger (12ish), I made a miniature city in the basement rec room. took up the entire room. It had a train running thru and around. It was complete with playmobile curbs, etc. I used Q-Tips® for the hydro poles and strung tinfoil strands, complete with real functioning, low voltage lights. I think I used a couple large boxes of Q-Tips®.

      That is so cool. Jason and I talk all the time about doing that when Bailey goes to college. Seriously! We think it’d be so fun to build a little town, and time consuming!

        I’m going to set up a model railroad in the garage. My friend’s father I grew up with had one in their garage. It was a large U-shaped table consisting of quite a few sheets of plywood. It was all hooked up to the ceiling via-winch system. Pull the car out, and you have a temp. play area. Lift it up and out of teh way when done.
        Expensive hobby though!

      That is a really neat thing to do.

    I normally have them, but do occasionally run out. Not for very long. I use them for all sorts of stuff!

    Painting in small corners. My kids used them for paint by number books instead of paint brushes. Cleaning windows or glasses where I can’t reach (like the inside of the window frame). Putting on or taking make-up off. While painting my toenails, I use these for cleaning up my mistakes. I dip them in nail polish remover to rub on frames to get the sticky stuff off from the store sticky tag (or any type of glass with a stick tag). Clean out the inside of my pets eyes. I clean out battery compartments when I change batteries (smoke alarms, remote controls, phones). For putting salve on. When I smoked I used them to clean out between the ash tray thingys that held the cigarettes. For cleaning out between the keys on my keyboard. For spreading glue.
