I just bought this (instore):
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Equate...t/22210896 (The 4pack costs 5.92!)

.98/300 = .00327 each

The only thing ive seen cheaper is Costco's Qtip 1875 count when on sale for $5.99.
$5.99/1875 = .00319 each

Pay attention to where it is made. I read that in India, they recycle medical waste cotton and make cheaper buds so they are not hygienic to use for anything related to your body.

cheap generic qtips come off the end easy and can get stuck in your ear costing a doctor visit to remove so stay away and buy only the real qtips

Ref: https://link.springer.com/chapter...-28681-0_6
Here is an excerpt:
Figure 6.2 shows some consequences of indiscriminate biomedical waste generation. The hazardous nature of the biomedical waste is due to the following: (1) infection, (2) genotoxicity (deleterious action on genetic material of cell affecting its integrity), (3) toxicity, (4) exposure to radioactivity, (5) injury. In many countries a number of contaminated waste materials like cotton, syringes, sharps re-enter the market either in the same or an altered form. Infected cotton may be used for making ear buds and toys. Syringes from waste are often repacked and sold as new packs.

When someone is greedy or uneducated enough to know the impact, things can happen. The responsibility for due diligence is on us as a consumer Peace
