How do I clean my LastSwab?

LastSwab is the sanitary, reusable alternative to single-use swabs that can be cleaned using soap and warm water. πŸ’¦

What is LastSwab made of?

The swab ends are TPE, the rod is plastic, and the case is PLA which is made of corn and is biodegradable. 🌱 When creating a product to last for thousands of uses, durability is key.

Even if LastSwab does end up in the ocean, it’s damage is less than 0.1% of its single-use counterparts, simply because there will be much less of them. πŸ‹

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. πŸš› 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, which you can use thousands of times.

I love my last swab


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


We're sorry to hear you're having problems opening the LastSwab case. We appreciate you taking the time to send us feedback about this issue.


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!

Thank you very much for your feedback, we're happy to hear :)


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.
