Makeup brushes and makeup blenders can be breeding grounds for bacteria, particularly if they are not cleaned frequently or stored properly or, worse, shared with a friend. Think about it: Even if you don’t have oily skin, the buildup of products and germs can contaminate your brushes and if you don’t clean them, then you’re just going to transfer this to your face.

These steps should be followed when cleaning your makeup tools, whether they’re brushes, Rockledge Raccoon Removal,  blenders and anything in between.

Step 1 – Rinsing

As straightforward as this step is, one needs to be very careful to prevent water from running directly into the base of the brush. This is because the water weakens the paste and leads to the falling from the bristles thus shortening the lifespan of the brush. The appropriate way to wash a brush is to always wash the bristles with water streaming down. However, the blender should be rinsed using warm water till it is fully soaked.

Measure 2 – Cleansing

When cleaning the brushes, a gentle shampoo, soap, or daily facial cleanser can work perfectly to help break down the makeup or dirt that has caked on the bristles over time. The shampoo should be worked into the brittles and rinsed with water till they become clean. You can also massage coconut oil to the bristles to receive all stubborn products out of the brushes. Lather should be shaped in the blender with the shampoo and thoroughly washed then rinsed until water runs clean.

Measure 3 – Disinfecting

Rinsing and cleansing the blender and bristle of this brush is sufficient to eliminate all forms of dirt around the brush but it is not sufficient to get rid of germs and bacteria. The only ways to eliminate germs is to disinfect the bristles. This can be done with a solution which contains two part water and one part Vinegar. The blender and brush bristle should be rinsed with water after disinfecting with the remedy.

Measure 4 – Drying

The last step to follow when cleaning your brush and blender is to wash them. The blender should be air dry or if needed to be used damp, then it may be put to work immediately.
