    Please do NOT throw away your mascara wands. Instead, clean JUST THE WAND with dawn soap, place them in a ziploc bag and mail them to a Wildlife Refuge accepting donations. These little wands are able to be upcycled to clean away oil, larvae, fly eggs, mites, infections, mud and other contaminants from wildlife. Works great for medical care and wound treatment

    Pick your refuge to mail to:

    Appalachian Wild
    P.O. Box 1211
    Skyland NC 28776

    OR

    Wildlife Wands
    P.O. Box 1586
    Southwick, MA 01077.

    I have been reusing the washable markers bought for the grandkids. Dip tips in water regularly and cap. Goes a long way.

    I make Sharpies or other permanent markers last longer by soaking tip in rubbing alcohol. You may see tiny bubbles coming from the tip of the pen- that's air being displaced. It might right a lighter shade but it's still quite usable.

    Crayola will take all brands of markers. They even pay for the shipping. I started a program at the school I worked in. Go to Crayola.com/colorcycle. It is so easy to collect markers in any elementary school in particular. Can you imagine how many markers are used by the kids in a school. If you don’t have children in a school, perhaps gather the information and drop it off with some old markers and if you can find one, a 5 gallon bucket works great for collecting. Crayola will provide signs and letters to go home to parents. Oh, now I see the comment right below mine. I did not mean to steal your idea, Kim M. My dad always said, “Great minds think alike.” (He probably stole that.)
