MAKE-UP ERASER!
THE Top Seller last year! NO KIDDING! It is Great for Moms, College Girls,Teens, and Children too! This SO soft cloth wipes off all make-up more easily than any remover or wipes we have ever found. Uses only water. No more ruined towels and just toss in wash 1x week.. GREAT for kids to remove face painting, stage make-up (recitals,plays, ice shows etc…), or Halloween! It is NOT chemically treated, just a unique wonderful fabric.

We have sold SO many because once our customers try it, they return for friends and family!
$19.99 (in Pink, Red, Light Blue,Navy,Purple)
