5. Prevent Blister Pain. So you got a blister from your new shoes, but you still want to wear them? Placing a cotton ball on the sore, and then securing it with a bandaid, will help cushion your skin from further pain.
6. Keep Your Purses Smelling Nice. Spritz a little perfume on a cotton ball and keep it in your purse. It’ll smell nice and fresh! Replace every one to two weeks.
7. Ease a Toothache. It’s 1AM, and that toothache just won’t go away. If you can’t get to a dentist immediately, there are ways to remedy that. The best, from my (unfortunate) personal experience? Cotton balls soaked in whiskey, vanilla extract or clove oil is the perfect remedy for a toothache. Soak the cotton ball in the alcohol, and apply directly to the affected area.
8. Clean & Store Jewelry. Cotton balls are the perfect, delicate tool for cleaning jewelry. They are also a great way to store jewelry, and prevent that big wad of tangled necklaces and bracelets that happens otherwise! Unroll the cotton ball and store jewelry in cushioned tiers.
