We have many different types of cotton swab. Except packing difference, material is an important point to classify the cotton swabs. There are several stick materials, wooden/bamboo, plastic and paper. The wooden/bamboo stick cotton swab is used in medical application, because it is strong and clean. Plastic stick cotton swab is going to be phased out, on other hand, the paper stick cotton swab is more and more popular, as it is environment-friendly.
Besides, swab plus is a special cotton swab, with liquid solution inside its plastic stick. When you use it, you just need to break off one head with color ring, the liquid solution will soon gose to another side cotton head. Currently we have two swab plus, alcohol swab plus and iodophor swab plus.
