Eco-friendly beauty tips from Mrs. Meyers

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
  • 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.
