How to clean the used lipstick tube


The outside of the lipstick tube is the most prone to dust and bacteria, you can try to disinfect the lipstick shell with an alcohol bath. Alcohol with a concentration of 70% is enough to kill bacteria, and the higher the concentration, the less likely it will evaporate. Hold the lip balm with your hand, intrude it into a 70% alcohol solution, and leave it for a few seconds to remove the bacteria on the outermost surface of the lipstick shell. Allowing the lip balm to air dry extends the contact time of the rest of the alcohol, allowing it to sanitize while it dries.

When cleaning the lipstick shell, you should pay attention to the inside of the lipstick cover, the closure of the cover and the lipstick tube, and the rotating outlet of the paste. These places are actually easy to hide dirty things. When cleaning, you can use a cotton swab or cotton pad dipped in alcohol to wipe. When choosing a lipstick, you can choose a lipstick that closes tightly and cleans well.

Usually pay attention: the lipstick should be covered immediately after use, and do not let the lipstick be exposed to the air for too long. It is best to keep the lipstick in the bag with you in the compartment or small pocket to distinguish it from other items, so as not to loosen the lipstick cover in the collision.

Whether lipstick is placed indoors or in a bag, the lipstick shell is easily covered with dust and bacteria, so the cleaning of the lipstick shell cannot be ignored. Pour medical alcohol into a small clean bottle, then close the lipstick tightly and put it in the alcohol for about 15 seconds, then take it out and let it evaporate naturally. If you are worried about putting the lipstick in alcohol, you can also wipe the lipstick shell with a cotton pad dipped in alcohol several times and wait for it to evaporate naturally. It should be noted here that don't wait for the alcohol to evaporate and choose to dry it with a paper towel. In fact, the alcohol is also sterilized during the evaporation process, so don't omit this step.
