Makeup Brush Cleaning – Made Easy!

I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that I constantly postpone washing makeup brushes every time I think I should be doing. So couple of months back I discovered that if I wash couple of the dirty brushes at a time, it takes me less than 3 minutes to clean and at-least I will have some clean brushes when I need, especially the most used eye and foundation brushes.


I had purchased my oldie L’Oreal Paris Go 360 Clean, Deep Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin as cleanser as I had very bad breakouts, and  surprisingly the scrublet is what is making my job easier. I agree, this is definitely a more convenient and affordable alternative to the Sigma Brush Glove or affordable brush egg.

After I have used the brushes I leave it near my sink and when I wash my face that night I try to clean my brushes with the scrublet and paired with a mild foaming soap, my favorite at the moment is the Dr. Bronner’s Un-Scented Baby Mild Pure-Castile Liquid Soap. I squeeze a small amount onto the scrublet for each brush and give it a good massage. The trick with this product is to apply it to a dry brush, it foams up a lot better as the soap already has quite a watery consistency and then after a quick rinse and blot I leave to dry overnight. I agree it doesn’t happen every time as promised but once the brushes reach the sink it does get cleaned at-least the next day if not the night before. Having clean 4 brushes is so much better than not having any! Right??

I have also read that you can use a textured oven mitt or a  Cat Grooming Mitt to clean your brushes instead of the Sigma brush glove, but my problem is I hate to have a time slot for cleaning, so cleaning as I go was the easier way for me.

Let me know what are your tips and tricks to clean brushes?

      1. So I was at Walmart picking up toilet paper last night and clipped to the shelf was a strip of just these pads without the cleanser. You get two in a package for just over $1. I guess these were a big hit everywhere.
