Thank you Body Language Soaps for sharing this awesome tip about keeping your lip balm and lipstick areas clean.
“I eliminated clean up all together with making lip balms. I have a pint sized canning jar designated for every flavor. I melt what I need, add flavor oil, and pour!!! When I’m done, I simply put the lid back on the jar. No mess, no clean up, I LOVE IT!”
Be sure to check out her blog – she recently did a great pictorial explanation about how she makes her Cold Process soap. Or get your own Pomegranate Lip Tint from Body Language Soaps here.
Kat, I totally agree. I always feel bad about using paper towels too. We just got a washer/drying machine at BB so we can reuse towels and not put our home machines at jeopardy. =)
That's a great tip! I've wanted to make some lip butter for a winter show, but didn't want to hassle with the small pots and different flavors, but this will be much easier.
i second that.
her labels, her shop
and her Photography are beautiful!
i took a bunch of new pictures last night and hopefully they are good enough but there is always room for improvement!
i have used so many paper towels in the last 2 years that i almost use them in my chart of accounts…..:)
i always feel guilty about that too….being a tree hugger and all, and bragging about how eco friendly i am.
we live in the country and septic tanks do NOT like grease!
Those labels are gorgeous!!
Good tip, too.
Great tips from Body Language Soaps and Ten Digit Creations – thanks!
(I did have to Google candle pour pot, though, not knowing what it is since I'm not a candle-maker.)

That's what I do also, except I don't have one for every flavor. Just pour out what I need using the tip below.
Another tip for you; use candle pour pots. They are a breeze to clean up after use. Just heat back up and wipe out with a paper towel, then with a wet wipe, then clean normally. Makes clean up another breeze!!
