Hi all, I can never seem to get my synthetic fiber brushes clean enough. I've tried lots of brush cleansers but there's always a bit of product left on the bristles. Please send advice my way!

I use disposable sponge for foundation, and it only costs about $2 per month.
You can google brush cleaner. I don't think that shampoo is good enough for cleaning makeup brushes.
Sometimes, I use makeup cleaner to clean brushes. But it costs....

MAC have an excellent cleaning solution. It's way to expensive for everyday use as a makeup artist but for home it's fine.

I'm thinking not, unless my shampoo is too cheap. I was using this one here only $1.90. https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/prod ... rmal-apple

I use a beautyblender sponge dupe fpr foundation. I have a packet of disposable sponges somewhere.

I saw people suggesting detergent online. I think it would destroy fibers.

you're probably not cleaning them frequently so product builds up. I dip mine in baby shampoo

The courses taught us that makeup brushes need to be disinfected. I use in addition to the shampoo a chlorhexidine

I use a soap called “zote” which is a laundry soap it works really good to clean any type of makeup brushes especially beauty blenders. Also there are little handlers that help you scrub in websites like the makeup shack which are very affordable (less than $10) and those two things are amazing! Will leave brushes as good as new.

Thanks, I'll search for zote online. :)

Are handlers the same as scrubbing mats?

To clean the makeup brushes:
1. Wet the bristles with lukewarm water.
2. Place a drop of makeup brush cleanser or soap into the palm of your hand.
3. Gently massage the tips of the bristles in your palm.
4. Rinse the bristles.
5. Squeeze out the excess moisture with a clean towel.
6. Reshape the brush head.

You should clean with lukewarm water with a sponge to cleanse the extra moisture.
