one clean / a container for cotton swabs

one clean
one clean

Most of container for cotton swabs looks alike. The cotton swabs always put together in one pack. However, we want to take one out but our finger will touch the others. That action let virus or germs infect the other cotton swabs. Therefore, this container can solve this problem using a base tilt that all the cotton swabs lean to the crack. The crack width just 5 mm that can let one swabs out. Then, take it out use two fingers, the other swabs still clean.
