Can you refill lip balm tubes?
If you have old chapstick/lip balm tubes that are empty laying around, then you can use an eye dropper to fill them back up, or you can try and pour them if you’re feeling adventurous or like to clean. I actually kind of want these since they’re really cute.
How do you put lip balm in a container?
Pour in lip balm and let set. Or take a portion of whatever item you want to store in a smaller size and fill the container up to the lip. Place homemade lip balm in the fridge to set so it creates a smooth, even surface. Don’t use the balm or screw on the cap of your container until the balm is solidified.
Why does my lip balm have a hole in the middle?
What causes the little hole that often appears in the middle of a lip balm tube? When melted lip balm is poured into a tube, it contracts towards the container walls during the cooling period. This results in a gap in the center of the lip balm, which is known as a “sinkhole”.
