How do you reuse lip balm tins?
Empty tins can be refilled with homemade lip balms or lip tints. Just melt down a little coconut oil or beeswax, add a dye of your preference (like beet juice, or even non-toxic melted crayons), and pour into the clean tin.
Are lip balm tubes recyclable?

How do you remove the last bit of chapstick?
Step 1: Cut one fuzzy end off a Q-tip, then use that freshly trimmed end to scoop the remaining lipstick out of the tube and into a small, empty container. Step 2: Point a hair dryer on low at the container to slowly melt the lipstick, being sure to keep the dryer at least ten inches away.
How do you fill a lip balm tube?
Just insert your lip balm tubes into the filling tray and pour your liquid balm ingredients across the top. (It’s a lot like filling an ice cube tray.) When your tubes are full, let the solution harden and then return to scrape off the extra and release the individual lip balm tubes.
How do lip balm tubes work?
They have a little cardboard disk in the bottom that you push up as you use the lip balm to make it go up, instead of twisting like on plastic tubes. The tubes come in a variety of sizes as well, so you could use them to make all kinds of things, like DIY moisturizers, balms, deodorants, etc.
