Prep Time 20 minutes
Drying time 8 hours
Author Amy


  • 1 tbs castile soap
  • 1/2 tbs oil almond, olive or jojoba should work fine
  • 2 tbs water


  • Mix castile soap with oil and water.
  • Dip brush in makeup brush cleaner, swirling them into the cleaner until makeup has come off. You may need to use your fingers to break up any big chunks.
  • Once you feel like the majority of the makeup has been removed, rinse makeup brushes under cool water until the water runs clean.
  • Hang brushes to dry. Tying them together with a hair band and hanging them from a hook works well.
  • Allow to dry for 8 to 12 hours.
  • Use as you normally would.
