Zen bristle cleaners work way better than any other run of the mill pipe cleaners. The stiffer bristles makes cleaning a breeze. There is no substitute in my opinion.
These pipe cleaners clean and work as advertised. For the price they are worth the money!
These clean pipes well and also double as a fun cat toy, according to my cat.
I keep a few bundles in my kit, the combination of soft/stiff bristles is priceless for getting things clean...
