Q-Tips

LOL...LOL....You guys are so funny, it's not like I was pondering on it, I just got home.

Before I tell you, let me explain:

Copos de nieve means snowflakes, right?

So we call them "copitos Jhonson" jajajaaja even if they're not Johnson's.... isn't that funny....LOL......I guess the translation would be "little snowflake tips?"

I really think this is very unique to the area where I grew up, maybe they call it something else nowdays.....but I sure grew up listening to my mother say "Hay que comprar copitos Johnson"....

That is funny! Thanks for sharing.

You're right, Q-tips were never made by Johnson & Johnson. They've been owned by Unilever since 1987. Before that they were owned by Chesebrough-Ponds (1962). And the original Q-tip Company was founded in 1923.

De acuerdo Elaina, creo que contonetes es el término normal que se usa en México.

Aquí se llaman bastoncitos para los oídos. No muy poético, me temo.
