    Reusable makeup remover pads

    Today I came across a great idea -  DIY reusable makeup remover pads. 

    I guess I'm a bit clueless but I had no idea such a thing existed!  You can order them online, but I like the DIY approach.

    One project involves making little crochet squares or circles using cotton or bamboo yarn.  Another project involves sewing little fabric squares cut from a charm square.

    I don't crochet, nor do I have access to charm squares.  I think I can make my own version using scrap fabric and squares of flannel cut from old baby blankets.  Old flannel PJ's would work too. 

    Alternatively I'd use baby towels or washcloths - should be nice and soft.

    I think it would be a frugal and green stocking stuffer!

    Cheapchic: I'm with you there.  I think the only time I wore make up was prom and that's been 30+ years.  I guess I wore green and blue mascara a bit in college...but that was to confuse a boss. (and I spent a total of 50cents on it). He would stare at it and just nod if I wore lots of it while asking for a day off.  I wonder how much we non-make-up wearers have saved over our lifetimes? 

    Does anyone have any idea on the savings?

    My lifetime savings would be the total expected cost of make up minus that 50cents for creepy colored mascara.

    I use wash cloths too, but I think the reusable pads are nicer for gift giving!  I can't imagine putting wash cloths in my girls' stockings!

    I wash it off with a cheap sponge.  Don't wear much, just some lipstick to keep from looking like a corpse and a little eyeliner for the glasses.
