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. 💦
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. LastSwab replaces thousands of single-use cotton swabs. 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. 🐋
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, which you can use thousands of times.
How long does LastSwab last?
LastSwab is tested to withhold up to 1000 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 LastSwab or any cotton swab to clean a child’s ear. 🙅🏻♀️
Why not use a bamboo box for LastSwab?
A bamboo box would be lovely, but since this is a product that needs to be hygienic, we have chosen a biodegradable corn-based material that can be sterilized. 👍💫
Can I get allergies using LastSwab?
LastSwab is Latex free.
What material is used for the packaging?
LastObject packaging is made of plastic free cardboard and paper.
How do I dispose of LastSwab?
Different countries have different systems. We would mainly advice to get it incinerated 🔥 for energy 💡
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.
