Today’s post is about a brush and sponge cleaner that I have been using for the last few weeks. I am not the greatest at remembering to clean my brushes. Having to wash them and let them dry sometimes means I don’t have them for the next day. I was using a cleaning spray that helped in between washes, but I haven’t been able to get my hands on another bottle. I either need to up my game or get a second set of brushes.
A friend of mine posted a picture of their recent visit to Daiso. Daiso is a Japanese store that sells all manner of things for $3.50 NZD. My friend had picked up a bottle of Daiso’s Detergent for Puff and Sponge and I knew I had to give it a go. I thought that if it worked on sponges, then it should be ok to try with brushes too.
So enough about my laziness, lets find out how this product worked.
How it works:
It comes out as a clear liquid that you rub into your sponge or brush. No real science just rub it in. Then you rinse it out with warm water and watch as all the old makeup washes away. This works for both sponges and brushes.
Tips and Tricks for brush and sponge cleaning:
Remember to rinse well and dry ant excess water off before you leave your brushes in a sunny spot to dry. If you have a naughty kitty keep them out of their reach or else you will end up with teeth marks in your handles and your sponges gone to die under the fridge T_T See pic below for such a creature.
It is also good to only wet the bristles so you don’t start eating away at what ever is holding your brushes together.
The amount that actually washes out is amazing. I used to wash my brushes with shampoo or dish washing liquid (I know don’t cringe) and it would take about two rinses for the water to run clear. With Daiso’s cleaner its with the first wash. I will be stock piling this stuff! If you have a Daiso near by, go and get it right now!! You need to give it a try :3
