Cleaning Makeup Sponges – Made Easy!

We all know how important it is to clean our makeup brushes and sponges but let’s be real how enthusiastic are we when we need to clean them? With a toddler around that’s the last thing in my list. But lately I have been using my makeup sponges for foundation, blush, concealer just to skip cleaning brushes and use this easy way to clean sponges. Want to know how? Keep reading…


  1. First place all sponges even powder puffs in a lingerie bag and place them in the washing machine.
  2. Use a wash load that is not too hot or cold setting. Add a fragnance free detergent. You do not want to take a chance of skin irritation.
  3. Remove the makeup sponges from the washing machine and allow them to air dry. Make sure the sponges are thoroughly totally dry.

Totally dried sponges look brand new when they shrink back to original shape!

I give total credit to Sinead Cady who showed this trick on her youtube channel. I did not try this before but after I saw her, I just had to do it.

Do you guys have any easy tips and tricks to clean brushes, let me know.
