When you think about Q-tips, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? You are probably thinking about cleaning your ears with them, right?
Well, they can be used for so much more than that if you just take the time to think about how versatile these little puff balls really area. To help you garner a newfound appreciate for Q-tips, check out some of the cool uses below.
1. Touch up the roots of your hair using a Q-tip and some eyeshadow.
If you simply don’t have time to make it into your hairstylist and get your roots touched up, there is no need to panic. All you need is a little eyeshadow that matches your hair color and a Q-tip. Dab the Q-tip into the eyeshadow and run it over your roots for an instant touchup that will get you through until you can make an appointment with the professional to get it taken care of for you.
2. Make a DIY whitening toothpaste and apply it using a traditional Q-tip.
If you are tired of having to spend a fortune on whitening toothpaste or you simply want to do things on your own, there is a simple remedy that can take care of that for you. All you need is some regular toothpaste, baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Mix them together until you get a nice paste. Use the Q-tip to apply that mixture to your teeth. Wait about one minute and then use a toothbrush to brush your teeth off.
3. Spruce up your scent when on the run.
Anyone who carries a purse can take advantage of this trick. It can often be difficult to determine where you are going to fit everything inside of your purse, so it is always good to have options. Take some of your favorite perfume and spritz some Q-tips with it. Put them inside of a plastic sandwich bag for later use. If you need to freshen up during the course of the day, all you need to do is grab one out and run it over all your pulse points to invigorate your senses and leave yourself smelling amazing.
These tips only take a moment of your time, but the results are truly amazing.
