What is this?

Cotton swabs.

Why did I buy it?

Nothing is better than sticking a Q-Tip in your ear, swirling it around and recovering a golden-brown torch of ear wax. Sometimes you need more than one Q-Tip per ear and may ponder what the hell occurred in your head to make this happen. I certainly don't know. But just keep digging and your problems will be solved.

But wait! I use these for way more than my ears. Cleaning small objects, applying liquid-y things, the list goes on (but ends here).
