Introduction

This is a very simple process for repairing a melted or broken EOS lip balm that will require no more than five minutes of work, with another 10 minutes of allowing the finished product to cool.

  1. To begin, open the lip-balm and use the knife to separate the center piece which holds the lip-balm in place from the bottom portion of the container. Knives are sharp, and you need to apply some force to split the container from the grate. It is easier to wedge the knife by the little, square notch that would usually lock the EOS.
