DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner



  • 2 cups of warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of dish soap (I use Dawn)
  • 1 tablespoon of distilled white vinegar
  • A glass


Mix the above ingredients into a glass. I start with the warm water, so I don’t get an overwhelming amount of bubbles in the final mixture.

Once mixed, add your makeup brushes (brush-side down obviously) and let sit. I usually let mine sit for about 20 minutes.

At the end of the 20 minutes, I swirl around each individual brush in the mixture before removing it from the glass. Next I place each brush under a running faucet (warm water).

After each brush is fully rinsed and the water is running clear, I lay them down on a clean towel or washcloth to let air dry.

I’ve used this process time and time again. It works great and is very inexpensive.

Give it a try and let me know what you think or if you have a brush cleaner that you love and adore, please share below! 

Happy cleaning!! 🤗
