What does the "Q" in Q-tips stand for?

Answer:

Quality

That’s right, the "Q" stands for quality. Q-tips were first conceived by Leo Gerstenzang, who observed his wife stick bits of cotton to toothpicks. He decided that his wife had the right idea and decided to start manufacturing ready to use cotton swabs. For the first three years, the cotton swabs were called “Baby Gays,” which the company would be modified to become “Q-tips Baby Gays.” Eventually, they dropped “Baby Gays” altogether and were just left with Q-tips. The term "Q-tips" is now often used as a genericized trademark for cotton swabs.
