Can I clean my lip balm?
Here’s the secret to cleaning those oily, waxy, messy containers. Gather up some of your old melt and poursoap scraps and melt them in the same container that contains your lip balm residue. Once it’s melted, swirl the hot soap around in the waxy container (try and touch all of the waxy spots).
Can you reuse lip gloss tubes?
You may think that old lipstick tubes seem like a throw-away item as soon as you finish the lipstick, but think again! After they are cleaned, these tubes can be recycled to hold Q-tips, bobby pins, or toothpicks. Perfect to throw in your purse! Recycle or upcycle, but keep those containers out of the landfill!
How do you clean empty lip balm tubes?
Reuse Old Lip Balm Containers and Clean Your Waxy Stuff. The first thing you’ll need to do is empty out the containers, as best you can, with a spoon. Dig out as much of the balm as you can with your spoon, and then swipe the inside out with a paper towel or old rag.
How do you remove the last bit of chapstick?
Step 1: Cut one fuzzy end off a Q-tip, then use that freshly trimmed end to scoop the remaining lipstick out of the tube and into a small, empty container. Step 2: Point a hair dryer on low at the container to slowly melt the lipstick, being sure to keep the dryer at least ten inches away.
Can liquid lipstick be sanitized?
Lipstick. Just like other cream formulas, you should clean your lipsticks with alcohol. Wind up your lipstick bullet so most of it is exposed, then fully submerge the pigment in a small cup of alcohol for about 30 seconds. Once you remove the product from the cup, it will be completely bacteria-free.

How do you fill a lip balm tube?
