In order to ensure safe and hygiene manufacturing, lipstick mold kit should be strictly cleaned and polished. There are various cosmetic molds for sale in the market, aluminum lipstick mold, rubber mold, silicone lipstick molds and so on.

Compared with other huge machines, the design of lipstick mold is not complicated, so cleaning and maintenance of lipstick mould is easier as long as with patience and carefulness.
For safety and sanitary consideration, clean the mold each time before making lipsticks, especially for the residual materials and stain in the mold inside.

1.First, you need to prepare some materials: gloves, Q-tips, wood skewer, paper towel, alcohol, mineral oil. (Aluminum mold should not be washed by soap&water, or mold will be rust.)
2.Wear gloves first then spray some alcohol on paper towel, and wipe the mold surface by paper towel.
3.Let q-tips dip in alcohol, then use q-tips to clean hard-to-reach spots.
4.Use a wood skewer to get to spots that a q-tip can not reach.
5.Once you finish cleaning all parts with alcohol, wipe the mold down with oil. (The oil could protect the mold from moisture in the air that can make it rust.)
6.Wipe off the excess oil with a paper towel.
