Dear Q-tips,

I have a great idea for a new product and a couple questions. I really hope you let me know what you think!

If there is such a thing as a Q-tips addiction then I have it. I never seem to have clean enough ears. I hate waxy buildup! I go through tons of these in a given week, and with the current state of the economy and the declining American dollar, it dawns on me this is one area I probably could cut costs. I mean, does a person really need to clean his ears 3 or 4 times a day? The answer obviously is “Of Course!” But with my revolutionary new idea this would be not only economically feasible, but environmentally friendly as well! REUSABLE Q-TIPS!

Just think, a quick wash and these could be used over and over again. A simple pack of ten might last a year or more!

And as to my questions, how far can you stick a Q-tip into your ear? (This question is addressed to whomever gets to read this letter). I can get in there quite a ways. I was wondering if there was a record for this.

Also, do you really need a “store finder” on your website? I mean wouldn’t it be easier to list stores that don’t carry Q-tips? And why have a “Product Type” selector if the only product you have is “swabs?”
