Best natural way to clean your makeup brushes

There are so many cleaners, shampoos, and soaps to choose from to wash your brushes. I’ve heard of using expensive cleansers from department stores full of chemicals, vinegar, alcohol or baby shampoo, but please, don’t support Johnson and Johnson after their recent lawsuit.

What I have found is the easiest is just a mix of Castile soap and hydrogen peroxide. The Castile soap is excellent at getting all the dirt and makeup out of your brushes while being gentle on the hairs and hydrogen peroxide is a great disinfectant to kill germs lingering in the brush.

Here’s how I clean mine!


• About a tablespoon of Dr. Bronner’s Castile soap.
(try to use unscented but any smells will work as long as your ok with scent)

• 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide

• 1 cup warm water


• Mix all of this in a big cup/bowl and stir it up until it’s all combined

• Now dip your brushes in it and swirl around. Rub the dirt of using your hands and scrubbing the bristles in the mixture

• Rub them on a clean towel to dry off and let them stand to dry

There you have it! Naturally clean makeup brushes!
