Suddenly slick conditions call for on-the-go resourcefulness. Here are my “blotting-sheet-less” quick fixes for de-shining in a pinch:
How-to: Place on skin, gently pat with fingers … and done. Do NOT rub or wipe.
At the Office
Notebook paper: non-glossy notebook paper is highly absorbent, and readily available.
Toilet paper: Separate the two-ply sheet into a single ply, and blot.
Toilet seat cover: The matte (non-shiny) side of a toilet seat cover absorbs just as well as a blotting sheet (just pull one from the back that doesn’t have toilet flush spray on it … ech!).
Brown napkins: Those cheap, one-ply brown napkins that you can get for free at any good fried chicken joint sop up T-zone oil just as well as greasy trans fats. Stick a few in your purse at your next $5 latte pick-up (who are we kidding? You paid for those.)
In the Car
Store receipts: I don’t know about you, but I’ve always got receipts lying around in my car (gas fill-up, drive-thru iced coffees, a dozen “nosh-while-I-drive-and-regret-it-later” Munchkins, etc.). The non-shiny kind are great oil-absorbers.
