    Cotton Wicks

    Just wondering what everybody is using for cotton and where they bought it. I've read a lot of different threads elsewhere on cotton and they actually left me somewhat confused. They were also from Americans so suggestions on where to purchase didn't apply in Canada.

    From what I can telly it's best to get natural cotton that is not bleached. Sterilised cotton? Also organic cotton. Some cotton requires a whole boiling procedure and I think if you buy organic, or sterilised, boiling isn't necessary?

    So, what type of cotton do you recommend, where can we get it here in Canada, and is boiling necessary?

    I have used this stuff in my Oddyseus, and it worked great. I didn't boil it or anything and it seemed to be alright. I don't know if I should have boiled it or not, but it worked great for me just like this.

    I'm on the hunt for cotton that I'm comfortable with and living in mighty small town BC I have really nowhere to look. I've gone to walmart and several yarn stores in my excursions out of town but still I'm using the Qtip cotton swabs. Even the big craft and yarn stores have heard of peaches and cream cotton yarn but have nothing to compare. I had a ball of hemp on my hand in the walmart but its walmart and I didn't trust its origin nor quality. Qtip swabs seem to be my cotton source that I'm comfortable with until I come across some cotton baton, peaches and cream or a substitute I'm comfortable with......the quest continues.
    These numbers reflect both my wife and I who both quit on the same day.

    Just get the cotton batting balls that your better half uses to take the makeup off her face ... it is pure cotton and it works.
