There are plenty more ways to use Q-tips (we call them cotton buds in the UK) than for cleaning out your ears (which experts say we shouldn’t be doing anyway!).

These little cotton swabs on a stick come in handy for many uses – particularly when you’re on the go or traveling.

If you are going to try any of these ways to use Q-tips, I recommend you buy a good quality brand like Johnson &

Johnson rather than cheapies from the dollar store – basically because you want nice full cotton swab ends.

1. Makeup on the Go

How many times have you reached for a Q-tip when you needed to repair some eye shadow or dab up some lipstick bleed?

Plus, we all know that one of the ways to use Q-tips in our beauty routine is as replacement applicators for makeup, but have you thought about extending that use further?

If you are only carrying a small purse, or if you hate carrying your cosmetics around with you, Q-tips are the answer.

Dip a q-tip in the eye shadow, lipstick, blush etc and pop them into those small plastic bags with the snap closures.

They take up minimal space, but you’ve still got what you need for makeup repairs and touch ups on the go.

2. Perfume Swatches

I’m sure that if you don’t like to carry a cosmetic bag around with you, you don’t carry your perfume bottle either.2

Make your own fragrance swabs by dipping Q-tips into your perfume.

Pop them into a Ziploc bag and into your purse and when you need a scent boost, rub the Q-tip on your perfume pulse points.

3. Camping Firelighters

Talking about things on the go – who wants to carry firelighters and cans of fire starter fluid in their backpack when going camping?

No need to if you’ve got some Q-tips soaked in WD40 in a Ziploc bag.
