Broken powder compact and how to fix them

I know that I have seen this happen a lot of time that the powder in the compact is broken and we have to throw away the whole thing or use it with hardship as it is.

It’s really annoying when we find a broken powder compact. It’s in chunks, small pieces and its makes it hard to use, but this can be fixed easily.

First we need to do to fix the broken powder compact is to put all the chunks in a container, break them into powder using the back of the brush and stir it up. Now we need to add alcohol slowly to make a paste if you add a lot, it is nothing to be bothered about as it will only take longer to dry up. Scoop the paste, put in it the container and place it somewhere.

After a few hours, you will notice that the powder is coming together and you can give it shape according to the container with the help of a paper towel.

It may take 8-10 hours depending on the amount of alcohol you put it but it will be good as new when dry.

Now when it is dry you will see that the whole thing is back together and as it is in powder form will be much easy for everyone to use.

You basically saved the broken powder compact from being wasted and thrown out so use save a lot of money on them as you don’t have to buy new ones.
