Uses for Cotton Balls

True to their name, cotton balls are small round balls of fluffy cotton material. Cotton is highly absorbent, so it is able to retain liquids, gels, ointments and creams well. As a result, cotton balls are often used to apply topical medications and skin care products. You can also use cotton balls to clean wounds and to remove cosmetics. Cotton balls are often used to prepare the skin for injections as well when used appropriately with rubbing alcohol.

Considering Size

One of the most important considerations when shopping for cotton balls is size. Manufacturers offer cotton balls in a variety of diameters. Very small cotton balls make it easier to precisely apply or cleanse small areas of skin. Larger cotton balls let you quickly cover a big area. You'll also want to pay attention to the size of the packaging. Typically, manufacturers offer products in boxes and bags in large quantities, such as 100 or more.

Other Important Features

There are other features of cotton balls that you may need to take into account, depending on your needs. If you have sensitive skin, you may need to look for cotton balls that are hypoallergenic, meaning that they are unlikely to trigger allergic reactions. For wound care, sterile cotton balls that have been treated to eliminate germs from their surfaces are generally recommended. This is important for maintaining a pure, clean environment for wound healing. To maintain sterile conditions, store cotton balls properly, according to the directions provided by the manufacturer.
