Hi everyone! i know it's been a long time since i posted on my blog. this is a good one. Everyone need to learn to clean and Sanitize their Dirty Brushes.
Things you'll need: 1. Brush cleaner any brand. My favorite is Parian spirits 2. Clear glass jar 3. Alcohol in a spray bottle 4. Paper towels and a med. size towel 5. Cetaphil rinse off face wash or shampoo and conditioner. Any brand
First you need to pour brush cleaner in the glass jar. You don't need to fill it all the way. Start with the lightest to darkest color of brushes you have. It really doesn't make a difference what order you do it... that's just how I prefer to do it because I like my Brush cleaner to stay as clear as possible until i get to the darkest color.
After you finish cleaning all your let them air dry. You don't have to do this every day! you only need to do it maybe once a week or once every other week because you're the only one using your own brushes. If you're using or sharing the brushes with different people than obviously you need to clean them every time you using them on someone else. I suggest you don't use brush cleaner every day because it's very strong and it sometimes disintegrates your brushes. Clean your big brushes last in a separate batch of brush cleaner. The big brushes tend to absorb lots of liquid. You might want to use a bit more cleaner than what you previously used for the small brushes. Make sure you take all the liquid. Otherwise it will take longer to dry. And you don't want the cleaner to stay in the brushes, like I said it's very strong you don't want so much liquid in the brushes. When you're done cleaning your brushes throw the dirty brush cleaner in the trash can, Not in the toilet Not in the sink! this is oil and it will clog your toilet and your sink. Don't say I didn't warn you. Wipe the container with a tissue or napkin and put it away to have ready for the next time you need to use it.
If you don't have brush cleaner you can actually use alcohol to clean your brushes. You can also just use Alcohol just to Disinfect.
Once in a while it's always good to wash with your face wash or shampoo and conditioner. After all they are hair so what better way than by shampooing and conditioning. This process is very simple all you need to do is put all your brushes in the sink or in a big container. Shampoo and rinse them off then condition them and rinse off again until they're nice and clean. You can repeat this process if you like until the brushes are completely clean. Squeeze out all the excess water on them you can use a bath towel to clean them. Be gentle and again let them air dry.
Wallaaaa!!!! Clean Brushes! now you have no excuse!
keeping your Brushes clean will prevent bacteria from forming. You will have less breakouts.
