Whatever Wednesday: The Mascara Edition

Whatever Wednesday is when we explore all the different ways that What-EVER! spray can be used around the house. It is an amazingly versatile little workhorse and because it is so safe and friendly, the uses are endless. If you'd like to share the unique ways you use What-EVER in your life, post a link in the comments or email me kate at cleanhappens dot com and tell me about it.

Well, it hasn't been that many weeks since the last time Eleanor got into my makeup and I swear I would put it up and out of her reach, if there was such a thing. This week it was the waterproof mascara. Seeing as lip stain and mascara are the entire contents of my makeup bag, that covers everything. She was quick with this one because I was in the next room doing laundry. In a matter of minutes she had gotten it down and smeared it all over the wall. At least she didn't try to apply it to herself and poke out her eye!

This is one of the spots: (Notice also the little bit of pink fingernail polish from a previous commando raid.)

The first spraying of What-EVER! and finger scrubbing with a damp cloth removed most of it, but there was still a bit left behind. (The fingernail polish came off!)

After a second spraying and finger scrubbing, it finally all came off. Because there are no solvents in What-EVER! I don't have to worry about all of the paint coming off on my cloth.

I have to say, I was a bit surprised at how well it came it off the walls. It's a bear to take off my eyes! I can't wait til swimming season is over and I can go back to regular mascara. And yes, I need to wear mascara or I look like one of those creepy aliens with no eyelashes! The curse of the fair-skinned, red-haired. And no, I don't have to worry about mascara running if I cry, because I don't cry. I'm dead inside. (ok, I'm kidding. mostly. I mean, I can watch Steel Magnolias with a dry eye. Even while watching Julia Roberts do the ugly cry. So, that's practically dead, right?)
