There are many things to think about when choosing a cotton ball holder. Many different kinds of holders for cotton balls are available, and they are sold for a variety of prices. The size, color, style, and the material used to make the holder are all key considerations.

Many cotton ball holders are clear, made from either glass or plastic. It is also common to pair a cotton ball holder with a twin cotton swab holder. One of the reasons why many people use clear containers is so that guests can easily see the contents and will not have to guess where personal hygiene items are stored. Some clear holders also have light patterns on them and may be visually appealing when filled with white cotton balls.

You may want to decide how large or small you require the cotton ball container to be. Some people like to store many cotton balls at once and prefer large containers. Other people, especially those with space limitations, may only want to store a small amount at one time. If purchasing a matching cotton swab holder, make sure you have enough counter space to accommodate both pieces.


Many types of materials are used to make cotton ball holders. Ceramic, marble, metal, and wood are all common manufacturing materials. Think about what will look best in the area where the item will be placed. Many people like the cotton ball holder to match the other décor or to complement the general design of the room.

Some people prefer vintage or antique cotton ball holders. It may be possible to find uniquely designed containers by searching for old models. The price of an antique or vintage cotton ball holder, however, may be more than some people want to pay.

New holders for cotton balls are available in many stores. The prices may vary, but generally they can be obtained inexpensively. Some people like to visit secondhand stores to find an interesting looking cotton ball holder. Others prefer sleek, new styles that can be purchased at any home décor store.

The best cotton ball holder for you may not be one that was designed specifically to hold cotton balls. Generally, a cotton ball holder has a lid to protect the contents from dirt, dust, and debris. Any container with a secure lid can be used to hold cotton balls. Choosing a container that was not designed for cotton ball storage may provide you with more style options.
