Yes they can be bulk sterilized but in turn, once you take them out of the package they were in they are considered not sterile anymore. The only way to really sterilize them as well is to put them into an autoclave.

The cotton swab was invented in the 1920's by Leo Gerstenzang and called "Baby Gays." After a little marketing advice, he changed the name from that to "Quality Tips" or "Q-Tips" for short. It's a brand name in the same sense that many people refer to making copies as Xeroxing, or refer to any plastic wrap as Saran Wrap.
