Cotton roll

I saw this in the store today - hydrophilic cotton roll.  (I had to look up what hydrophilic meant even in English: having a strong affinity for water.  Made sense when I looked at the word again.)

I'm pretty sure I've seen this in the past at some point, but it's been a long time. Like in-my-grandmother's-bathroom-cabinet-when-I-was-a-kid long time. Normally I would use a cotton ball to apply astringent to my face in the morning, but was curious to see what this roll was about.  And now I wonder, what other things could I do with a roll of cotton?


  1. Cool, I remember seeing these in Brazil back in the 1970's when I was a kid, haven't seen it since!
    Maybe used to clean up big wounds!!!
    Or you could just break off the size you want for whatever use you may need it! :)


  2. I wish how we use it in Cuba back in the days, but I can't here one day when I see you I will explain. Besitos

  3. Sorry I meant that I wish I could tell you how we used in Cuba back when I was younger. I will explain more when I see you. Muchos besos

    1. I think I knew what you meant, but thank you for the clarification, Tia! :o)
