Cleaning With Q-Tips Precision Tips + $25 Am Ex Gift Card Giveaway

Using Q-Tips to Clean

While I'm not OCD when it comes to cleaning, there are little areas that start to grate on my nerves after awhile. Like the bottom of the water and ice dispenser on our fridge...

We have hard water, and when you pair that with five kids that just can't seem to grasp how to fill a water bottle without spraying water down the front of the refrigerator door -- well, you end up with crusted on hard water deposits that drive me insane.

Q-tips to the rescue! Specifically the new Q-Tips Precision Tips cotton swabs which boast the same cushy cotton swab tip you know and love compressed into a pointed precision tip perfect for reaching small spaces. These are ideal for a variety of other kitchen tasks such as:

  • Cleaning kitchen cabinets -- Dirt and dust can accumulate quickly on the moldings and trim of your kitchen cabinets. Q-tips Precision Tips cotton swabs are small enough to get into these cracks and crevices and remove unwanted buildup.
  • Tidying up condiment jar edges -- Use Q-tips Precision Tips cotton swabs to clean the spout or around the edges of your condiment bottles.
  • Degunking stove knobs -- Q-tips Precision Tips cotton swabs easily remove caked on grease from stove knobs.

I'm sure you have dozens more ideas for how Q-Tips Precision Tips cotton swabs can be used. Share your tips in the comments for a chance to win a box of Q-Tips Precision Tips and a $25 American Express gift card!
