Cleaning Makeup Brushes

Cleaning make-up brushes is an important part of keeping your bathroom and toiletries organized. Recently I was at a pharmacy and saw that there are many products on the market for cleaning brushes. Of course I stood there thinking about ways to do this without spending so much money and using things I already have at home. I came up with 2 great mixtures that left my makeup brushes like new.

#1. 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, 1 squirt of baby wash, 1/2 cup warm water. Swirl your makeup brushes around in this to degrease and clean off all the residue that has accumulated on them. Rinse well with cold water. Repeat until the brushes don’t color the water with makeup. Rinse one final time and let air-dry.

#2. 1 teaspoon of Dawn dishwashing soap, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, 1/2 cup warm water. Again, swirl your makeup brushes around in this to degrease and clean off all the residue that has accumulated on them. Rinse well with cold water. Repeat until the brushes don’t color the water with makeup. Rinse one final time and let air-dry.
