Clean those brushes…Naturally!

So, fall. I’m not sure about you all, but there’s something about fall that makes me NEED to clean. Okay, yes yes Spring Cleaning…I know, I know. Everyone is all about that, but there is something about the fall that makes me so happy to be able to spend a Sunday with a crockpot cooking away and me knee deep in a pile of clutter to sort through.

This past weekend, I decided to sort through all of my make up and chuck out a bunch of stuff. While I sorted through about 84 lip smackers (yes, I know…whatever, I’m a baby of the 80’s), I decided to let my make up brushes take a little relaxing tub ie. get clean!

So, up until about a year ago I would buy a bottle of make up brush cleaner and use that to soak my brushes. It wasn’t until I realized a.) how easy it is to make my own and b.) why would I use chemicals to clean my brushes when I’m careful about what I actually put on my face with cosmetics. Silly.

All you need to make brush cleaner is:

  • A clean jar or cup
  • Tea tree oil
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Shampoo (look for one without any sulfides or preservatives); You can also use a basic dish soap, but look for one that is mild without dyes.
  • Warm water
  • A bundle of dirty brushes!
  1. Mix together 1 tsp tea tree oil, 1 tablespoon shampoo/soap, 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup of warm water.
  2. Let all brushes soak in water for at least 15 minutes.
  3. Once soaked, let the brushes lay flat to dry.
  4. And you’re done!
