    If looks say anything, I'd guess this will let you discover what vaping shoelaces is like. That's an old product and I've never heard of it; Sometimes that alone says something. I'd still try it though.

    Old or new product, new find for me, seems perfect as changing my dripping cotton for ( NETs ) six times a day
    cut & go no faff as using cotton pads.

    So far as I can tell, cotton is cotton is cotton. I can’t tell a dime store cotton ball from the most expensive vaping cotton once it in my coil

    Except some of the fancy stuff is much, much worse.

    @SCOTT-3 let us know how it turns out! Definitely an interesting format!

    Yep. I have tried a bunch - Ko Gen Do, Cotton Bacon, Native Wicks to name a few - but I always go back to organic cotton balls from the drug store. I get a huge bag for a couple of bucks.

    To use them I unroll the ball into a long strip and cut into shorter "wick-length" pieces. You can get a TON of wicks out of a bag of balls.

    I'm done with all the rest.

    I was so very tempted to pounce on the "You can get a TON of wicks out of a bag of balls" portion but then I remembered that there is a Hall Monitor lurking around here, waiting to issue demerits.

    What’s there to pounce on? You can get 2-3 wicks per cotton ball and a bag is a couple bucks. I’m confused.

    I really could care less about cotton. I use rayon.

    I have to admit that I have not tried rayon. Is there somewhere to get a small quantity? I don't want to order an entire box from the beauty supply shop. What is it...Sally something-or-other...??

    I don't know. I bought a box of 500ft for $15 at Sally's Beauty Supply. They had it on the shelf. I guess it's used to do perms. Since I've started using rayon I've never gone back to cotton.

    Yep, and there are three of their stores within a few miles of me. Just never got around to going, and don't really want a huge box. I guess if it's 15 bucks it's not a big deal, and I have heard enough good chatter about rayon that I expect it works well, so it may be worth the $15 gamble.

    It's the CelluCotton on the blue box, right?

    Looks like they have a 10ft piece for $1.99 - works for me. :)

    Yes but be careful. There is some cellucotton that is just organic cotton and not rayon. Make sure you read the label.
