Never Dispose An Old Mascara Wand, As It Can Help You In These 7 Ways!


Most of us when we hear of recycling, we always think of mason jars, plastic bags, tins, containers and many others, but we rarely never think that other small things like the mascara wands can be recycled and reused to do other things. Most women dispose the mascara when they have 2-3 months of use. Even though it is advised to do so, there are very many ways that you can use the mascara wands to perform other functions. In the hack clip below, we see how the wands can be used in different places of cleaning.

We can see how the wands can be used in grooming the eye brows, cleaning small crevices like those ones of the jewelry and many other things. Also these useful wands can be of great help when you are exfoliating your lips after applying a lip balm on your lips, or you can use them to hold together flyaway hairs, more especially in women.

  • Clean small crevices.

Ever really look at special eyebrow-grooming tools? They’re not much different than mascara wands. So why spend money are specialty tools when you can just reuse what you already have? The wands are also great for softening up too-severe eyebrow pencil.


  • Exfoliate your lips.

The beauty uses of mascara wands don’t stop with your eyes. Keep your lips lovely and give your lip color more oomph by applying some balm and then gently exfoliating with a mascara wand.



  • Touch up your roots.

Are you brave enough to dye your hair at home? Even if you’re not, you can extend the time between salon visits by touching up your own roots, and mascara wands are the perfect tool to zero in on fading or greying spots.


  • Tame flyaway hairs.

Once you get the color perfect, you don’t want to ruin your look with rebellious hairs. Rather than spraying your whole head and getting helmet hair, spray a mascara wand and brush down the hairs you need to control.


  • Clean your nails . . .

When it comes to cleaning under nails, we’ve always had two choices: pretty ineffectual nail brushes, and painful orange sticks. Get the gentleness of the former with the effectiveness of the latter by using a mascara wand instead.


  • . . . then make them beautiful!
