Make-up Brush Make-Over

Posted on Updated on


Today’s pin is actually two pins for the same purpose. This was something that we would’ve looked up eventually due to the grime and muck that clogs Mama and my brushes after months and months of use. We found two different pins that seemed kinda similar and inexpensive so we tried them both out today and determine which would be the winner!

The first is mixing a little bit of olive oil and dish soap in a bowl/cup.

The second is just mixing hot water (doesn’t have to boil) and a tablespoon of white vinegar.


Lesson #1: Mixing olive oil and dish soap creates a muddy-

looking concoction, but yet smells very clean.


Lesson #2: Physically nothing looks different when mixing vinegar and water,

however it does not smell clean at all.


Over all, I would say that olive oil and dish soap won my vote simply because it smelled better. However, both carried out the cleansing process exquisitely. 🙂

    I use the olive oil and dish soap method, because the soap not only cleans, but the oil helps condition the bristles. Helpful tip: after squeezing the water out, lay the brushes on a hand towel with one end rolled to keep the handle propped up. This keeps the water from running into the ferrule and loosening the glue that holds the bristles in place. Also make sure to wash brushes once a week or so to keep bacteria from building up! I need to do a better job of that myself 🙂
