That's why they were originally invented. Q-Tips doesn't state this now, but the inventor saw his wife use little balls of cotton on a toothpick to clean their baby's ear, so he made the Q-Tip to do the job better. Watch this ad from the 50s
and see how they use it.
They can rewrite history, or gloss over history, all they want. The original design of a Q-Tip was made to fit into ears. To pretend otherwise silly, but understandable in today's litigious society.
