Dear Crissy

Boo-boo’s happen — Q-tips can help!

I love products that have multiple uses, and I really can’t think of one product that has more practical, everyday applications for busy moms than Q-tips cotton swabs. I mean, just think about the number of times you have reached for a Q-tips cotton swab for a quick fix — it’s amazing — when you think about it!

As a Q-tips Tipster ambassador, I’ll be bringing you some fun tips, tricks, and ideas to introduce you to the many uses for Q-tips cotton swabs. I’m also here to learn more about your great tips!

Q-tips Brand Ambassador

One of my go-to uses for Q-tips cotton swabs, is to clean and apply medication to my toddler’s minor cuts and abrasions. Let’s face it, boo-boo’s happen (frequently), and you need to have a good plan of attack to take care of these minor wounds.

Notice the abrasion on Evan’s forehead, between his eyes? This little scrape was the result of a stumble last week.

I use Q-tips cotton swabs to apply a bit of hydrogen peroxide to clean Evan’s minor cuts and abrasions, and after drying, I use another cotton swab to apply a medicated ointment to the area. Add a bandage, and your toddler is ready to rock-and-roll thanks to Q-tips cotton swabs!

    They definitely are the best for so many uses. Like you do I also use them to clean boo boos and they are fab for getting between small cracks in appliances etc. I’m heading over to check out their facebook page! Can’t wait to read your tips/tricks:)
