Reusable Wash Rounds

You know those old cotton rounds used for makeup removal and/or nail polish remover? Well they’re handy but oh so wasteful. Solution? Reusable wash-rounds! They’re like wash cloths but way handier.

Here’s what you will need to make them:

  • A towel or terry cloth fabric (you can buy either at the store but second hand works best)
  • Air dry pen
  • Cup or something circular to trace around
  • Serger, sewing machine or needle and embroidery floss

  1. First you want to trace as many circles that you can fit on to your towel or fabric.
  2. Then cut out all your circles and match them together, wrong sides together.

The last step depends on what equipment you have. If you’re using a serger, just sew around the edges and you’re done! If you’re using a sewing machine you can use a zigzag stitch to sew around the edge. If you’re working with a needle and thread, I suggest using a blanket stitch [tutorial].

I store them in a jar similar to these. After I use them I just throw them in the wash along with my towels. Just make sure you remember about them. They’re small and easy to overlook!


Also, how cute are these marble ones jars?!
