How to make make-up remover pad

These simple, sustainable make-up remover pads are super easy to make. They can be washed and reused over and over again.

You will need:

  • 1 x old tea towel

How to:
Iron the tea towel smooth.
Make a cutting template using scrap paper, a large glass or a small plate.
Using your template, draw circles onto the tea towel and the fluffy towel.
Cut out the same number of circles from the tea towel and fluffy towel.
Place one tea towel and one fluffy towel circle together in pairs.
Sew around each circle close to the edge, leaving a 2cm opening.
Turn the circles inside out, then tuck in the edges at the opening.
Sew around the edge again, completing the circle to secure it in place.

If you are feeling creative, add embroidery to each new pad.

Washing Instructions:
Use once, wash with your other towels. Store in a beautiful jar next to your sink.
