Cotton swab
Cotton swabs (American) or cotton buds (English) or ear buds (English) consist of a small wad of cotton wrapped around one or both ends of a short rod, usually made of either wood, rolled paper, or plastic. They are commonly used in a variety of applications including first aidcosmetics application, cleaning, and arts and crafts. The cotton swab was invented in the 1920s by Leo Gerstenzang after he attached wads of cotton to toothpicks. His product, which he named "Baby Gays", went on to become the most widely sold brand name, "Q-tips", with the Q standing for "quality". The term "Q-tips" is often used as a genericized trademark for cotton swabs in the USA. Although doctors have said for years that usage of the cotton swab for ear cleaning or scratching is not safe, such use remains the most common.

Bomullspinner (ofte kalt Q-tips) er små plast- eller trepinner med bomull på hver ende. De har flere anvendelser som for eksempel innen personlig hygiene, i medisinen eller ved påføring av sminke. Den vanligste bruken er til rengjøring av øregangen, men det anbefales ikke at den stikkes inn i selve øret. Bomullspinnen ble oppfunnet på 1920-tallet av den polsk-amerikanske Leo Gerstenzang. Han ble inspirert av sin kone som brukte en tannpirker med bomull på tuppen for å rense øret til deres sønn.
