LastSwab is the World's first reusable q tip. It provides an eco-friendly alternative to the many uses of single-use q tips without the large environmental footprint. This reusable q tip comes in two different models for different applications. One for general q tip uses and one for more beauty-oriented ones. They are both made from durable yet flexible, high quality, and non-toxic materials which are gentle on the skin and very easy to clean. Both LastSwab Original and LastSwab Beauty come with a convenient and biodegradable carrying case that keeps your reusable q tip stored away safely. The carrying case is made from ocean-bound plastic, which is also used for the rod of the swab. For the tip, a rubber-like material called TPE is used.



LastSwab is the sanitary, reusable swab that can be cleaned by hand using soap and water. The Beauty LastSwab can be cleaned with a little makeup remover.

LastSwab, above all, is an opportunity to transform our routines for the benefit of the planet while also simplifying and decluttering our lives.



Every day 1.5 billion disposable cotton swabs are produced and every year an average person uses hundreds of them. To manufacture a disposable cotton swab resources have to be taken out of the ground, moved to a production facility, produced, packaged, shipped, and then purchased by a consumer. This entire procedure requires the cotton swab to be used once and then discarded. By using LastSwab we eliminate the need to produce and use resources that are unnecessary.

Every time a single-use cotton swab is made, whether it is plastic, paper, wood, or bamboo, it has to go through this whole process. And this is exactly why LastSwab is a game changer! LastSwab replaces 1000 single-use cotton swabs. This means that instead of going through the process 1000 times, it only has to be done one single time.
