I just purchased Smart Swab at Walgreens in Plymouth, Minnesota. The spiral cleaning method is very similar to Roto Rooting, a clogged drain. Following the directions, my wife and I attempted to remove the ear wax that we both knew was present in our ears. With zero success, we tried the conventional cotton cue tip/swab. This method produced quite a bit of wax. If the Smart Swab was really up to the task, it should have removed this wax as well. The packaging is very cute, and you get 16 soft tip ends. That's all there is for the good news.
This is a rip off! Don't put this into your ears, or better still, don't put this into your shopping cart!
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
