Last Swab Basic 'Q-Tip'
The swab ends are made of the rubber like material TPE, and the rod is made of plastic reinforced with glass fiber. The case comes in two versions and is either made of the plant based material PLA, or of recycled ocean bound plastic collected by Indonesian fishermen in collaboration with the organisation: https://www.reseaproject.com/.
Paper and cotton swabs impact the environment because they are single-use. The average person goes through hundreds of cotton swabs each year. These cotton swabs get produced, warehoused, shipped, purchased, used, and discarded. During this process, the use of raw materials and the CO2 created are harmful to the environment. These processes become unnecessary when you commit to using reusable products like LastSwab.
How long does LastSwab last?
LastSwab is tested to withhold up to 1,000 uses.
Is LastSwab sanitary?
LastSwabs are easily cleaned with water and a little soap. You can also use a disinfectant like rubbing alcohol to sanitize it.
Can I use LastSwab to clean a child's ear?
We do not recommend using a LastSwab or any non-safety cotton swab to clean a child's ear. We will be launching a safety/baby version of the LastSwab shortly.
Can I use LastSwab for nail polish removal, art projects or instrument cleaning?
You can generally use a LastSwab as you would use a single use swab, but keep in mind that LastSwab is not heat resistant and you can not use it with solvents such as acetone or non-acetone nail polish remover.
