Can you recycle?
Cotton pads can’t be recycled and should go in your rubbish bin. Don’t try to flush them either, as cotton wool expands in water and can cause blockages. If you’re after a reusable alternative, you can buy reusable make-up remover pads made from fabric. Lots come with wash-bags as well so that you can clean them easily when you next put a clothes load in the washing machine.
