Safe-Qtips / Cotton swabs

Safe-Qtips
Safe-Qtips

when you were using the cotton swab,have you ever hurt your tympanums because you had no idea how depth your tympanums were?
We used the cotton swab to clean our ears in common after we swimming or taking a shower.
The groups of blind and elderly are easier to hurt their ear drums than the others.
Therefore,we design a grip point on the cotton swab for avoiding both of two groups getting hurt beacuse they have worse ability to recognize the distance of their ear canals.
