This quick and simple guide shows you how to clean your makeup brushes with common household items.
Wet your makeup brushes in a bowl of warm water.
Pour a small amount of olive oil on your paper towel and gently rub the brush around.
Re-wet the brush and pour a small amount of soap into the palm of your hand (the quantity depends on the size of the brush) lather the brush for about 30 seconds.
Set out to dry overnight and enjoy your new soft clean brushes!

Oh nice I never knew this. I have a big brush I can't use cause I used old makeup on it that irritated my eyes (how I guessed the makeup was too old) so now I can have my brush back. Yay

I used to do that but I found that olive oil nourishes the bristles.

Thanks. I normally just use a few drops of baby shampoo, but this is good too
