Sunday Secret | How I Keep Grabby Makeup Packaging Clean

We all have it. Makeup that comes in grabby packaging. NARS, Lorac, the original Urban Decay Naked Palette, that velvet covered IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte Palette... Even silicone band sport watches. These items reach out and hold on to every free roaming speck of household and makeup dust, dander, pet hair and even light foundation smudges. And they don't give them up easily.

Until now. I figured out how to keep my grabby packaging and silicone watch bands clean and tidy, not have to store all of my palettes and compacts in their original boxes (what a pain in the ass that was!) or plastic zipper bags.

I left some of my grabby stuff sitting out for a week to accumulate a nice coating of airborne detritus. Look at all of the dust, dander, cat hair, fibers... *twitch*

The fast and easy way to clean off grabby packaging is with a lint roller. I buy the cheapie ones at Walgreen's. They work fine. Grab a lint roller and a messy, rubbery or velvety palette and roll, roll, roll. Bye-bye dust, dirt, makeup dust, pet hair, your hair, fibers and fluff. The lint roller will even clean away very light foundation smudges. 

Ahhh... That is so much better! Neat and tidy palettes and no more having to store them in their boxes. My life is easier, my mind is easier.

What do you think? Yeah? Nope? Maybe you'll try? Let me know if it worked for you.

Now if you'll excuse me, it's snack time and that banana looks tasty.
