Congratulations! You've just learned what Scouts have been using since at least the 60's!

Personally, I jam cotton balls (free out of pill bottles, cheap at dollar stores) into an empty pill bottle (they're leak proof) then pour in rubbing alcohol. I can get about a dozen balls into a standard pill bottle.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intent of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!
