Just that really.

How often do you clean yours and what with?

CointreauVersial Sun 26-Jun-16 23:20:53

I don't clean them as often as I should. blush

But I use water and shampoo, then rinse and leave to dry.

I use baby shampoo and not as often as recommended grin I wash foundation brushes/sponges more often than powder brushes.

Not as often as I should and use a bar soap like Dove.

Not often enough shock.
I put a drop of Fairy washing up liquid in a mug, pour in fresh boiled water and leave brushes to soak for 10 mins before rinsing and leaving to dry naturally.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 27-Jun-16 00:07:14

Every couple of weeks with a tiny spot of Fairy.

Every week two months or so. Not as much as I should blush and I use whatever shampoo I'm currently using.

Never. I didn't know I should.

I clean mine weekly to twice weekly. I usually just use the hand pump soap but I read on hear that ELDW only shifts with cream cleanser so today I used cream cleanser first followed by soap. Now, let me sicken you into checking your brushes more often. About a month or two back I was washing a brush and something about it caught my attention, like it was harder to clean or something. I spayed the bristles gentle under the running tap to rinse the soap out like normal but something just wasn't right. I looked more closely and there were little things like creatures deep down in the bristles. Now I freaked and didn't look into it any further. All my other brushes got binned.

I use baby shampoo and RT's brush cleaning silicone thing and clean them every week. I can't stand grubby brushes.

LotsOfShoes Mon 27-Jun-16 08:41:54

I clean them after every use with warm water and shampoo. I'm pronento spots and don't want to risk grtting more because of andirty make up brush.

HoggleHoggle Mon 27-Jun-16 08:50:35

I never do blush

I have grossed myself out now and will do it today. I'm usually very clean, honest confused

Judydreamsofhorses Mon 27-Jun-16 09:08:12

Every Friday, using baby shampoo.

cheeseandmarmite15 Mon 27-Jun-16 09:10:52

Mine get washed in warm water and hibiscrub. I replace them once or twice a year, depending on which ones are used the most

pinkieandperkie Mon 27-Jun-16 09:15:40

I clean my brushes about once a month. I wash them with shampoo, rinse and leave to dry. My blusher brush in particular works so much better when it's clean and fluffy!

CoolToned Mon 27-Jun-16 09:51:51

I clean foundation brush everytime - after I use it. But I rarely use brush anyway so it's not too much of a hassle. I use oil and soap. Any soap, any oil will do.

cressetmama Mon 27-Jun-16 11:37:39

Spray with Serozinc or brush cleaner, and wipe on cotton pad. About twice monthly, depending on how often I use the brush.

CointreauVersial Mon 27-Jun-16 12:54:10

Argh, dudsville, that's gross!

dudsville Mon 27-Jun-16 20:36:46

Yes Cointreau, it was, very.

Polkadot1974 Mon 27-Jun-16 21:58:19

Not enough. Clearly. Urgh! Dettol tomorrow I feel

DesolateWaist Mon 27-Jun-16 23:05:25

Very interesting answers. Thank you all.
A bit of shampoo I think it is.

dragonsarebest Tue 28-Jun-16 00:02:16

A drop of Dr Bronners, every 1-2 weeks when I remember.

lapinthe Tue 28-Jun-16 08:52:38

Weekly. I use a bit of micellar water in the palm of my hand and swish.
