As you know, Home-Ec101.com works with Q-tips®. Did you know that Q-tips® cotton swabs do a lot of good? This summer Q-tips® cotton swabs brand is donating 1 Million Q-tips® cotton swabs to 3 charities that can use them daily – Operation Gratitude for care packages, Ronald McDonald House of New York for arts & crafts and Glamour Gals for intergenerational manicures & makeovers.

And that’s not all, here’s another quick tip from Q-tips®. This month my suggestion is to use Q-tips® Precision Tips to apply grout sealant to stained grout (obviously this is tiled surfaces with thin grout lines). I have previously talked about How to Fix Stained Grout (and there is a video demonstrating the technique, SWEET!) You’d use the same technique, just with a small brush or disposable Q-tips® for smaller lines.
Just for fun I wanted to know what those of you on Twitter suggest as uses for Q-tips®.
@HeatherSolosUmmm. . . I’m rather fond of using Q-tips® for booger removal. I learned this watching boxing. . .works great!

@heathersolos I like to use Q-tips® to smudge my eyeliner for smokey eyes 🙂 They are also great for cleaning up stray nail polish.

@HeatherSolos I use Q-tips® when applying makeup. They’re great for cleaning small mistakes off your face, or making the perfect smoky eye.

And the lovely @janlnye said they make great cat toys, but she had a potty mouth, don’t mind her, she’s writing a book or three and that gets stressful. And someone else said they make great blow darts, but I didn’t think Q-tips would like that suggestion, no matter how much it made me giggle.
