There are all kinds of mimikaki are sold at stores.
Mimikaki are also popular as souvenirs at tourist-sites, just like key chains or cell phone charms.

It’s considered as an intimacy action, and the scene that a newly wed wife cleans her husband’s ears with mimikaki on her laps is often seen in Japanese movies or animes.
