Hey anyone noticed how much BJ long pipe cleaners suck? They literally cover everything with little white particles.

There does seem to be a lessening of the overall quality of the last batch I've gotten of them. I get the open bundles of 56 ( used to be 60) and haven't tried the packs of 100 in the plastic bag. There might be some difference. Twisted Evil

I found the same with the 100 pack as the bundles. I couldn't believe they way they coat my entire room with white "snow". I can only imagine how much gets into the pipe and gets sucked into my mouth and lungs yuck

get the 50 foot rolls and the only time I have issues is at the cuts I make and if I twist the cleaners the wrong direction to untwist the cleaners. Then yah, it snows.

Yes, suck, they do, and big time. Brigham's pipe cleaners seem to be also in the same league. I had to stop buying them because they jammed the stem of one of my pipes. Trying to clear the airway, the fricking stem cracked (the pipe was almost new) and had to get a new stem.
Dill's are much more expensive but I find they are much better, so far. So I recommend them for discriminatng pipe smokers.

I use Randy's claeners from Low Bob's. They seem to hold together pretty well, and they are a bargain.

They are no doubt trying to reduce manufacturing costs, but I would rather pay double for a quality pipe cleaner than deal with the fuzzies.

I thought so too but I recently got some and they were snowing quite a bit more than I'd remembered them doing, although the particles were smaller than the BJ's. The thing is they aren't as stiff as the BJ Long's either so it's harder to put them through a pipe without them bending up on you
