DIY Reusable Make-Up Remover Pads

Make-up remover pads are one of the most difficult household waste to recycle.

Do you continue to use it daily?

According to the ademe, we would throw 34kg / inhabitant / year of sanitary textile waste (diapers, wipes, tissues, etc.). Large area cleansing wipes are for single use and are not water soluble.

 In an approach more concerned with the environment, I decided to make my own cleansing wipes.

To make this tutorial, I chose this old school cardigan found in the second hand market Two Marktet in Barcelona.

As I mentioned before, one of the disadvantages of Two Market is lighting. If you’ve ever been in a thrift shop, you know that the most important thing is to look carefully at the condition of a garment before you buy it.

Tasks, holes, missing button, composition, mark, size, general condition, everything must be sifted.

Good lighting is therefore more than necessary. So it was only when I returned home that I noticed the brown stain (coffee?) in the middle of the cardigan. Impossible to make it leave despite several washes … So I decided to turn this old school cardigan into make-up cotton.
