DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner

DIY Makeup Brush Cleaner

By: Katie Neely

Make up brush cleaner can get pretty spendy, now you can make your own from ingredients that you already have in the kitchen.

What you need:
Hot Water-1 cup
Dish soap-1 TBSP
White vinegar-1TBSP
Container to clean brushes


  • First, mix hot water, soap and vinegar in your container. I found a cleaned out peanut butter container works well.
  • Place your brushes in the solution and swirl them around. I found it best to clean only a few brushes at a time. Once your brush has been washed in the solution, rinse them out with warm water. (Cleaning brushes in solution and rinsing may need to be repeated)


  • Once your brushes have been washed and rinsed, squeeze out excess water, reshape and leave them to dry on some paper towels.


  • Brushes should be dried and ready to re-use within 24 hours.

And there you have it! It’s that simple. 🙂 Hope you find this recipe as useful as I did!
