Easy tick removal with just a water-moistened cotton swab

Tick and cotton swab
Source: Popular worldwide on youtube.com
This video shows a tick being removed by a cotton swab slightly moistened in water, that you use to rotate the tick around until it falls off. That way, the mouth detaches from your skin. Looks easy but I wonder why they don’t moisten the swab with alcohol – wouldn’t that be better? If I learn of an even better way, I’ll share it.
