Your U-Tip Questions, Answered
How to use the Utility Tip?
Apply to the ear and use the finger grips to gently twist and pull out ear wax. The Utility Tip is going to feel firm at first. Please use very delicate pressure only. Being rigid is what helps the Utility Tip work. It pulls wax out instead of packing it in the canal like cotton swabs.
Is the Utility Tip safe?
Yes! The U-Tip has 3 finger grips on the handle. These finger grips can be used as a depth gauge to offer you more confidence. Use as directed on the packaging.
Are Utility Tips like cotton swabs?
The Utility Tip looks similar to a cotton swab but is made out of plastic, so it will feel very different. The Utility Tip is designed for maximum ear wax removal.
Can I use the Utility Tip on my kids and pets?
Yes. Since the Utility Tip is more firm than a cotton swab we recommend that you use the Utility Tip on yourself first so you know the delicate pressure required. Keep out of reach of children. Follow the directions on the packaging.
How much pressure should I apply?
This will depend on the person, start with a very delicate pressure and increase as desired.
Can I make the Utility Tip more flexible?
Yes, place under warm water for 30 seconds to relax the material.
Will the Utility Tip hurt?
The Utility Tip is different than what you are used to so there may be a learning curve to knowing what works for you, use multiple times to get the hang of it.

How long will a Utility Tip last?
Utility Tip hasn't conducted any studies to advertise how long they will last. Since we don't want to mislead you we can't give an exact duration. Here are a few things to consider. Utility Tips are made from a high quality recyclable plastic. Repeated use is only recommended if the Utility Tip is properly cleaned. Bacteria can accumulate if not properly cleaned.
Are Utility Tips recyclable?
Yes! You've heard the phrase "reuse is recycling". Utility Tip recycling is two fold. 1. Reusable - 2. Recyclable. All of our packaging is recyclable. The Utility Tips are recycle code #4. Thank you for helping the environment by being responsible and recycling.
