Donate your old mascara wands
Did you know that mascara wands are really useful tools for animal shelters? They use them to comb out fly eggs and larvae from the fur of animals. ⠀
If you’re interested in donating some, hold onto your empty mascaras and ask your friends and family to keep them for you until you collect a dozen or so. Then just give them all a wash in soapy warm water to get them as clean as possible (it helps to soak them for 15 minutes beforehand to loosen the dried mascara). Dry them and they’re ready to give to your local animal shelter.
