I recently bought some more Q-tips. I use them every day. You known when you're all dry from the shower but your ears are still wet? Well, these are the only things that will do the job. So, as I said, I recently bought some more. And may I say that I hate the generic versions of Q-tips: the CVS brand or Target version of Q-tips are weak. They bend when you apply any pressure to them. I like Q-tips because they are much stiffer and hold up perfectly when used.

Q-Tips, you have let me down.

My recent purchase has led me to discover that Q-tips have changed their formula: The shafts are now much weaker than before and are identical to those knock-off brands I mentioned earlier. This is a travesty. It's obvious that they are trying to save money by using less paper in the design of these things, but it's terrible. They don't hold up like they used to and it's driving me nuts. I now HATE Q-tips and will be buying the cheaper knock-off brands since they are now equal in quality.

Q-Tips, shame on you.

Sometime in the past year (or so) Q-Tips dramatically changed the amount of cotton on its swabs.

They have probably 1/3 to 1/2 the amount they did previously. I used to be able to 'twirl' a tip counterclockwise against a terry towel to "puff it up" and get more absorbancy. Not any more.

These have definitely changed into a second-rate swab, and everyone in my family noticed it in our most recent 500-pack.

Shame on Unilever!

I am glad I found you guys. I opened by Q-Tips today and thought I was crazy. I thought there was a mistake, this could not be q-tips, did I get the wrong package? I put them from the box in a container so I dug around and found the box in case I made a mistake and I hadn't. Then, I found an old Q-Tip in my travel bag and sure enough, the new ones are like cheesy, stinky, generic but I paid brand name price! My mom used Q-Tip before me and I have bought them myself for 30 years and they were a non-negotiable item as far as cutting corners. Had to have the brand! I really feel let down and I am so glad I am not alone! I sent a note to the company but only after reading your comments. Don't know if it will help.

I unfortunately have to tell you that I am not happy with your product, I have been purchasing Q-tips for 40 years and use to love them, I now find that the stick is to flexible and there is not enough cotton on the tips, that they are extremely uncomfortable. even my children and husband have complained non-stop with this last box of Q-tips I recently purchased. I do hope that you will go back making them the way you used to make them.

A very unhappy customers. Patti Ursulak

The New Condensed Q-Tip --- just god-awful!!!

I agree with another reviewer.... shame on you Qtips!!!
Just imagine all the Hollywood make-up folk... running all over the land to now find new DECENT swabs!!!! oh my god --- are you out of your mind Qtips?!??!!

I just called J&J and expressed my disappointment and angst; my $4.09 refund is on it's way. EVERYBODY else SHOULD DO the same!
Use the ph# on the back of the box, can't put it here.

.... with the 5 I have left ---- antiques roadshow here I come!

==================
UPDATE:
For those, as I, still filled with angst.... I'm picking up a pkg of these:
**Royal Wood Stick Cotton Swabs 1 Box - 300 Count ($7.98+freeShip)**
...found here on amazon. A little pricey but what I want and am willing to pay.
Double-sided cotton tips and WOOD sticks w/decent reviews... anything has got to be better than these. Too bad Qtips, 50+ yrs, it was nice... but I have to go now.

Size Name: Pack of 1 Verified Purchase
The cotton on these unravels every single time I use them! I didn't have any troubles with the stick bending etc, but the cotton issue is terrible!! I bought these since they were on sale so cheap - 2 bucks - but now I regret it.

I usually buy generic ones at the Dollar Tree, for a dollar of course, and those work perfectly well and NEVER unravel on me. I figured for the price, I'd buy these QTip brand, but boy was that a mistake. I can't even believe these things are so poor in quality, but yet the price is premium. Ripoff.

I used to love Q-Tips brand because they were sturdy and got the job done, now they are limp and cheap like their worst competitor, I will save my money and buy the best quality of the cheap ones.

Q tips now have less cotton than ever on them. Don't stick them in your ears, it's not safe anymore.
