Product

What is LastSwab made of?

The swab ends are made of the rubber like material TPE, and the rod is made of plastic reinforced with glass fiber. The case comes in two versions and is either made of the plant based material PLA, or of recycled ocean bound plastic collected by Indonesian fishermen in collaboration with the organisation: https://www.reseaproject.com/.

Why not just use paper and cotton ones?

Paper and cotton swabs impact the environment because they are single-use. The average person goes through hundreds of cotton swabs each year. These cotton swabs get produced, warehoused, shipped, purchased, used, and discarded. During this process, the use of raw materials and the CO2 created are harmful to the environment. These processes become unnecessary when you commit to using reusable products like LastSwab.

How long does LastSwab last?

LastSwab is tested to withhold up to 1,000 uses.

Is LastSwab sanitary?

LastSwabs are easily cleaned with water and a little soap. You can also use a disinfectant like rubbing alcohol to sanitize it.

Can I use LastSwab to clean a child's ear?

We do not recommend using a LastSwab or any non-safety cotton swab to clean a child's ear. We will be launching a safety/baby version of the LastSwab shortly.

How does the Beauty LastSwab work best?

Our LastSwab beauty experts dip the ends in makeup remover to take off excess mascara on their eyelids.

How do I clean the Beauty LastSwab, and can I use it in my beauty salon?

LastSwabs are easily cleaned with water and a little soap. The Beauty LastSwab can be cleaned with a little makeup remover if it’s been used with waterproof makeup. If you use the Beauty LastSwab in a beauty salon or as a makeup artist: Always remember to clean it thoroughly with warm water and soap between customers, let it dry, soak it in alcohol sanitizer, let it dry, now it’s ready for your next customer.

Can I get allergies using LastSwab?

LastSwab is Latex free. For more information on allergenics, please contact us at hello@lastobject.com.

Can I use LastSwab for nail polish removal, art projects or instrument cleaning?

You can generally use a LastSwab as you would use a single use swab, but keep in mind that LastSwab is not heat resistant and you can not use it with solvents such as acetone or non-acetone nail polish remover.

How many single use swabs does LastSwab need to replace to be better for the environment?

The question is complicated to answer precisely as the carbon footprint of 1000 single-use swabs depends on the materials used: organic cotton or not, wood sticks or paper, the distance between production and consumption, waste management options at the location they are discarded etc.

Where is LastSwab manufactured?

We have two LastSwab manufacturers, one is located in China and one is located in Denmark. We only work with non-EU manufacturers that have SMETA (ethical audit) certificates.

I have a neck & shoulder injury that prevents me from being able to use both hands sometimes. Making the Last Swab case easier to open with one hand would be Awesome! The special needs community wants to be earth friendly also! Thank you for your time in considering this upgrade. Namaste, Cassandra Karuna

I definitely love my latest l last swab, it's just that as an alternative to cotton swabs, I would always use cotton swabs to dry out my ears after a shower and the last swab is not able to dry, just clean. But I do love it for cleaning my ears out

Thank you! Some find it useful to wrap a piece of tissue paper around the swab to get the ears completely dry.

I've had my Basic Last Swab for more that a week now, and it makes me very excited and satisfied to think of all the disposable cotton swabs I'm saving! Don't expect the same sensations as with a cotton swab: it's not cotton, so it doesn't absorb, and in the ear you notice it a bit weird at the beginning, but it's just a matter of getting used to it. It's gentle, cleans my ears perfectly and with just some water and soap it's as new!

Love my Last Swabs! I was worried about how different the harder material would feel in my ear as opposed to cotton, but when used gently it’s SO NICE. Like a lovely ear scratch :) I’ve read some folks have had tons of success wrapping a bit of tissue around the tip for absorbency, but I honestly haven’t missed that feature.
