There has been numerous life hack ideas on how you can clean or even dry your makeup brushes at home at your convenience. I happen to be someone that slide on a Brush Guard sleeve on each brushes, tilt it upside down and put the brushes in a glass. It’s the same method that I’ve been practising and posted in this Tips: How to Clean Your Dirty Brush since early 2012.
Recently I stumbled upon a brilliant method from Instagram, which unfortunately I’ve forgotten who it was from and my Instagram has gone wonky as I was typing this
so I’m unable to link her here but I will once I can access to Instagram but I finally found her after a full day of searching in Instagram like a headless chicken and I found her through other people who share her method. Girl, your method is my favourite!
The method I saw was to use bobbles aka hair ties (the 1st and 2nd hair ties you saw from the left) to secure the brushes upside down on a towel rail. Now my towel rail is in the bathroom which is a damp section in the house so I wouldn’t want my brushes to spoil AND coincidentally I have a brand new towel rail that I bought moons ago from 100 Yen store. I also have a handful of bobbles at home but I couldn’t find them anymore after I shift the things around in my room. I managed to find two bobbles from my wallet LOL and I used elastic hair ties for the rest of the smaller brushes. It works the same but the only difference is I cannot move the brushes easily since elastic hair ties is non slippery once in contact with plastic. That means I will be buying more bobbles later 😀
The original idea creator did not use any Brush Guard and I changed that too. I’ve included Brush Guard sleeve to the brushes to maintain it’s shape. I just don’t like fluffy bristles after the wash.
Hope you like this quick and easy life hack sharing for today. I wasn’t planning to put up any blog post today but I thought you would want to know this idea too.
Now it’s your turn to share with me how you dry your brushes. I know some of you will talk about using sticky tack on the inner shelf top LOL. So besides that method, what else? 😀
