SPD! {Clean Make-up Brushes}

Pinterest never lets me down.

My make-up brushes were gross. Really super gross. So I went into that cute little search bar in Pinterest and I searched for "make-up brush cleaner" and I found a ton of options. I can't link to the original pin I used because the link took me no-where. *insert annoyed face here* but I found one similar here. I saw it. I pinned it. I did it.

This is fool, fool, fool proof!

The Problem:

The Solution:

Mix up
-1 Cup of warm water
-1 Tbsp of vinegar
-1 Tbsp of dish soap

I used the swirl and tap method.

Swirl the brush around in the solution, tap the excess off on the side, rinse, re-shape, let dry overnight.

I was blown away by how well this worked. Here's a better look..

The brush on the left was before the swirl and tap (can i make that a catch phrase?). In the past I had rinsed that brush off before to try and get that blackness off. Never came off. The picture on the right? After the swirl and tap. Do you see blackness? No, you don't. Want to know why? Because this stuff works!

I sound like an infomercial.

But look at these pretty, clean brushes!

  1. Oooooh I needed this! My brushes need to be cleaned badly!

  2. Thank you!!! Oh my gosh this is great. Between my mom and I we have so many brushes that need cleaning. Its funny because I think I've saw this before but never actually thought it would work.

  3. oh my gosh! So clean! I also recommond baby shampoo.. its super gentle and does a great job! I have been using it for years! The bottles are like 4 dollars and last for months and months!

  4. my brushes are disgusting and I have GOT to take the time to clean them soon, thanks for the "recipe"!

  5. love all your brushes, nice post ;) xx

  6. This looks like a much better plan than buying expensive brush cleaner! Did the vinegar make your brushes smell at all?

  7. Thanks for sharing! Swirl and tap reminds me of bend and snap from Legally Blonde haha.

    Did you make your brushes swirl on the bottom of the jar you used? Or did you swirl with them just chilling in the liquid?

  8. Every weekend i used to go to see this website, for the reason that
    i want enjoyment, as this this website conations genuinely nice funny data too.


I love you people! Let's be friends.
