Quick Tip from Q-Tips and a note about Q-Tips for Good

Heather says:

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.

Visit Facebook.com/Qtips and SHARE to show your support!

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!




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.

What uses do you have for Q-tips®?

This is a sponsored post. Q-tips® product was provided by Unilever, the makers of Q-tips®; my usage suggestions are my own and those of the Home-Ec101.com Community.
