I have been trying to share this post since a very long time and finally, I am here with the recipe of an antibacterial brush cleanser, which you can easily make at home. I guess a lot of people who do not invest in brush cleansers rely on easy yet useful baby shampoo to clean their makeup brushes. I myself use baby shampoo for cleaning my eyelashes and makeup brushes too, as these shampoos have been proven safe for makeup brushes for its mild properties. It is very important to clean brushes after use in order to avoid skin problems. But, just cleaning the makeup brushes regularly is not the only solution. Killing the bacteria while cleaning the brushes may help us out in avoiding skin problems. So, I’ve included the most trusted antibacterial solution “Dettol” in my recipe. All the ingredients which I’ve used to clean my makeup brushes are totally safe and doesn’t affect the quality of brushes. I’ve tried this homemade cleanser several times and I absolutely love how my makeup brushes look neat, fresh and conditioned after having a bath with my very own home made antibacterial brush cleanser. So, let’s quickly move on to steps to create the solution.
Things You Need:
Olive oil: It helps in removing the makeup and dust particles from the brushes and conditions them.
Baby shampoo: It helps in cleaning the brushes thoroughly and is absolutely safe on the delicate bristles of makeup brushes.
Dettol: It helps in killing the bacteria in the makeup brushes and thus saves us from skin problems.
Step 1: Pour in some olive oil into an empty bowl. You can adjust the quantity according to how much cleansing solution you need to clean your brushes.
Step 2: Add same amount of baby shampoo in the oil. Both the oil and the shampoo should be of equal quantity.
Step 3: Now add a little dettol into the solution. (1 teaspoon approximately) You can use any other antibacterial solution of your choice too.
Step 4: Combine all three ingredients with the help of a spoon and mix well.
Voila! The anti bacterial cleansing solution for cleaning makeup brushes is ready.
How I Use the Antibacterial Cleansing Solution:
Step 5: Here, I’ve dipped my blush brush in the solution, so as the bristles in the end absorb the solution. And, to remove the excess, I’ve pressed my brush hard against the wall of the bowl.
Step 6: Then, I’ve rubbed the brush on a scrub pad which most of us use in our kitchen to wash utensils. You can also use makeup brushes silicone mat that are easily available in market these days.
Step 7: After rubbing the brushes well on the scrub pad, it’s time to clean them by dipping them into a bowl or a jug filled with water. If you are cleaning all your brushes together keep changing the water often or simply place them under running tap water.
And, here’s how my babies look right after having a bath 😀
