Guys, my office looks like a Sephora/Ulta/CVS-combined blew up in it... And my apartment isn't much better! I have clutter EVERYWHERE! I've been reading some tips from a new book, Mrs. Meyer's Clean Home: No-Nonsense Advice That Will Inspire You to Clean Like the Dickens, and it's been super helpful! (Mrs. Meyer is the founder of the eco-friendly line Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day).
I thought I'd share some of her beauty-related tips with you guys...
- To get hairspray off of mirrors: Pour rubbing alcohol on a cloth and clean in small circles. You can also use a baby wipe if you have them handy. Then grab club-soda that you've put in a spray bottle and give the mirror a spritz, wiping it clean with bunched-up newspaper
- Removing mascara from clothing: Mix a tablespoon of dishwashing liquid with two cups cold water, apply the solution to the stain, and then blot until it's gone. (Make sure to follow these guidelines for wearing eye makeup.)
- Makeup Expiration Dates: If you have trouble keeping track of how old things are, start writing the dates on them with a permanent marker when they're new. Mascara lasts only three months, and it's important that you remember when you opened it, because that wand gets a buildup of bacteria that you don't want in your eyes. Sunscreen lasts one year and lipstick up to three.
Safety First: Make sure to follow these guidelines for makeup disposal.
