I’ll openly admit. I LOVE tipping as the kids are calling it on the street. I am hardcore. I look forward to showering just so I can Q-tip my ears. Little secret: my mom’s nickname at work is even Q-tip but that is because of her cute little afro.
Sounds great huh? Life is perfect.

Problem? Q-Tips are in fact harmful to you!
Say it isn’t so;( My friend told me this and my life went into a downward spiral. I had to find out the truth. Searching “Q-tips = evilness” and I found an article from WebMD called “In Praise of Earwax“:
- Ears are self-cleaning and need the acidic ear wax to protect from bacteria
- The waxy surface will keep the ear smooth and water will not adhere
Shame. My pride of flame yellow orange sticks are no longer. So what does this all mean? It is all marketing! Huh? Really.
Yea, crazy but I realized how did they convince the world that you must remove with such pride the yellow gold that comes from our ear. Is it cause your parents do it? Is it similar to smoking that we know its bad for us yet it feels really good in the present?
How did Q-tip (cotton swabs) do this great marketing?
