B~Tips #1

Hello there. Welcome to B~Tips where I share tried & tested tips, tricks & hacks.

I usually make my own lip balms for each season and oftentimes gift them to friends and family. But trying to fill 20-30 lip balm tubes all at once can be a bit tricky, especially if you don't have one of those lip balm filling trays, which can cost a fair penny. I can't tell you how many times the lip balm tubes have tipped over or the wax mixture hardens because I've taken too long to pour it into each individual tube very carefully so as not to spill any. Here's what I did:

Rummaging through my kitchen, I've come up with a super easy solution - up-cycle an egg carton. Flip the egg carton upside down so the bottom is now the top. Make slits in the "pockets" that usually hold the eggs. Don't make the slits too big otherwise the lip balm tubes will just slip through. Another way is to use the slots in between each "pocket". Just push the tube into each slot as far as it will go. With an 18-egg carton, I can either fill 18 lip balm tubes or 10 tubes using the slots. This is a cheap and easy hack. Ingenious no? Well I thought so!!!

P.S. If this post was helpful, you may share it.

See you next time!
