Woman reveals awesome tip for cleaning makeup brushes
REFRESH makeup brushes can be a tedious and time consuming endeavor.
Luckily, a woman called Stephanie revealed her genius for cleaning them up in no time – and with no effort required.
In a post on TikTok, the social media user explained that all you need is an old pillowcase.
The savvy woman then demonstrated in the video how she threw all of her grimy brushes in, to keep them from getting lost, and tied it up.
Then she placed it inside the washing machine and added a “little” soap powder to the drum.
Her last step was to put it on a delicate 30 degree cycle, admitting that she was a little nervous about what she had done.
Unbelievable! I’m doing this tomorrow because my brushes need cleaning and I normally dread it
Captioning the clip, Stephanie wrote: “Bad mistake or better idea?”
In a follow-up video, she joked, “What am I going to find here? I pray little baby Jesus to make this work.”
The beauty fan then opened the bag to find that her bright idea had worked really well and allowed the brushes to air dry.
Commenting on how freshly cleaned one was, she exclaimed, “Wow so fluffy!”
