Every Friday I like to highlight one of my favorite Pinterest finds of the week. Sadly I realized that it’s been a year since I did my last Pinterest Fun Friday. I can’t believe it because this was always one of my favorite post. I will do my best to keep up as life moves forward. This post not only allows me to spotlight some really awesome and crafty ideas but it allows you to see a few Pins you might not have seen this week. –
I spend way too many minutes’ hours in the day pinning on Pinterest. Now if I could only find the time to make all of these wonderful things I pin! Wouldn’t that be great?
Let’s Get Pinning!
One of my favorite nightly beauty routine items that is a must have are the Burt’s Bees facial cleansing towelettes. I love them and I especially love how they smell. One thing that I have noticed is just how much of the towelette goes to waste each night. I only use about half of the towelettes and the rest goes in the garbage.
I started thinking about how much I was wasting at a cost and how I could do things differently. You never want to waste anything you love right? Each Burt’s Bees facial cleansing towelette package comes with enough for one month’s worth of cleaning, but by cutting them in half you could get two months’ worth. After all, these are not the most inexpensive towelettes, and I only use half of the towelettes anyway. Waste not want not right?
I decided there was a simple solution to my problem. Cutting then in half and storing them in an airtight container would not only help them go further but would also help preserve the moisture in the towelettes which is a must when expecting them to last a month or longer.
In the past I have gotten close to the end of the month only to find that my last week of towelettes are almost dried out. Here is a simple solution!
What you need:
- 1 package of Burt’s Bees facial cleansing towelettes or any brand
- 1 small Mason jar or a jar that is airtight and to your liking
With clean and serialized scissors cut each towelettes into two even pieces. Place each piece into the serialized jar that you have chosen.
Once each piece is in the jar add any additional liquid to your jar. Seal the jar tightly then give it a shake.
If you find that you jar doesn’t have enough liquid in it to keep your towelets moist add about 1 tablespoon of water to the jar and seal it. I don’t advise adding much more than I tablespoon. You are only looking for them to stay moist not wet. You can always add another tablespoon later in the month if you feel it’s necessary.
You should easily be able to get a few months out of your towelets without them drying out. Plus this gives you the ability not find a nice jar to match your bathroom or the freedom to decorate a jar that will fit your needs and your taste!
This is not rocket science but it’s a great way to add a little more décor to your bathroom and find a practical purpose for your everyday routine. Even better, it’s a great money saving idea!
