So,they have Wooden Cotton Swabs at CVS if you are in the USA (made in Canada eh):
Sold here too:
And-just wow,hardcore stylin'-check this quote from The Answer Bag:
|i paid a lot for the hard to find wooden beauties and used to stockpile them, but now i think i have a much simpler and cheaper solution.... cut the plastic versions in half and slide in the hollow tube something to make it rigid. something of course with a blunt end that won't go thru the cotton tip. i am using a 2mm L shaped allen wrench. awesome and you get all the leverage you need!
What a great idea! Thanks!
