Homemade brush cleaner


Hiya all,

I was searching the internet for some homemade brush cleansers. I normally would be using shampoo and conditioner, but I wanted to try something different. I found homemade recipe on PrettyGossip.com that sounds so easy and I have to say it works really well:-)

So here is what you have to do: 
Ingredients:
  • baby shampoo (or dish-washing liquid) -> to clean your brushes
  • ONE part olive oil -> to condition in order to keep them in a good condition
Directions:
  1. Mix baby shampoo + olive oil + a little bit of water on a plate.
  2. Pick up the mixture with the brush and gently swish around to work up a nice lather on the palm of your hand.
  3. Rinse well with water and gently squeeze excess water out without pulling bristles. 
  4. Air dry with bristles pointing down. (*You don’t want the water to work it’s way up the brush because it will loosen the glue holding the bristles together.)


If your brushes are really dirty I would suggest to repeat the process. It will be definitely worth it, as you don't want to wreck your skin by putting make up with a dirty brush.

Let me know if you do something different. I'm happy to try different ingredients.

Kisses
