Multitasking beauty tools

I bet you thought, when you read the title of this post, that I’d be talking about something kind of glamorous like using lipstick as blush. Wrong! I’m not really a glamorous kind of girl! I’m more about not spending money and making do with what you already have (well, except when I go on crazy sprees at op shops!).
Anyway, today’s post is about a beauty tool that you quite possibly have in your bathroom right now. It’s meant for keeping your feet nice and soft, but did you know that it can make your jumpers look better too? 

That’s right, I’m talking about using a callus remover (is that what it’s called? It looks kind of like a very fine cheese grater on a stick) as a clothes brush to de-pill your jumpers. How many of you actually own a clothes brush? I know I don’t, but that doesn’t matter, because now I know I can use my foot tool thing instead. Here’s what my jumper looked like before:   

But now look at it! 

 All I did was run the callus remover thingy over the surface to scrape off the pilly bits of wool, and now it’s all nice and smooth. Just like my feet, although what I scraped off them was certainly not woolly (but we won’t go into that). 
So there you go – if you had been contemplating buying a clothes brush but you already have a callus remover, now you don’t have to. Enjoy thinking about how to spend all that money you’ve saved!

現在の女性はいろんなビューティ道具を持っています。私は少ない方だと思いますが、それにしても足専用の道具を持っています(たこを削るやつだからビューティ道具の中で一番グラマラスじゃない物かもしれない!)。で、話がちょっと変わりますが、ウールのセーターに毛玉ができて、毛玉を取る道具がなかったから手で取り始めました。かなり面倒な作業だからやっている内にあることを思いつきました。それは、たこ削り(本当はなんという物だか分からないから勝手にその名前をつけました)で毛玉を取ってみることでした。してみたら、ちゃんとした毛玉取り(それも本当の名前じゃないだろうけど)よりちょっと粗いけど、やさしくゆっくりするなら問題なく効きます!一つの道具が二つの作業できるのは嬉しいですね。これで毛玉取りを買わずに済んだので、使おうと思ったお金は別の物で使えます!
