  • Take any generic eye tears or eye drops that are not used to treat any specific condition
  • Add about 10 drops of the product in the tube of the mascara
  • Place the wand and close the tube
  • Shake the tube around and use the wand to swirl the mascara inside
  • The eye drops will reduce the dense consistency of the mascara and dissolve all clumps

2. Using Hot Water

  • Take the wand of the mascara and dip it in hot water for some time
  • After some time take the wand and place it back in the tube
