    Can you please explain why?

  3. Ms. Sue

    Glycerin-soaked is hyphenated -- making it one word. It's used as an adjective modifying cotton. It tells what kind of cotton is being used.

    When the word "glycerin" stands alone, it is indeed a noun.

    Example: Glycerine is a colorless, odorless, syrupy, sweet liquid.
