    How To Clean Your Beauty Blender At Home Using Baby Shampoo

    The simple process of cleaning your beauty blender is ideally you should wash your beauty blender with plain water after every use till the water runs clear. But, does that actually remove all the bacteria and properly clean the blender? Of course not.! It needs much more than plain water.

    What could be a better cleanser than baby shampoo? We all know that baby shampoos are very mild and made considering the sensitive and tender skin of the kids. So, the mildness will definitely cleanse your beauty blender and make it appropriate for the long run use. Here is how you can keep your beauty blender clean and germ-free:

    Things required

    • A mild baby shampoo
    • Running warm water (warm water kept in a bowl/mug will get cooled down and the cleansing needs a bit of pressure as well)
    • Thick paper napkins

    How to do it

    • A dry beauty blender looks very small and contracted than it's original size. So, to convert it into its original size, put it under the running warm water for a minute or two. 
    • After it turns into its original size, put 2-3 drops of the baby shampoo and rub the beauty blender gently. Rub it with the help of your left palm and fingers of your right hand.
    • Rub it for like 45 seconds to 1 minute as it will help in extracting all the dirt and the leftover makeup from it.
    • After that, put the beauty blender under the running warm water and rub it thoroughly till the water runs clean. You will observe that all the dirt and the leftover makeup will come out of the beauty blender and it will start to appear clean slowly.
    • Nicely squeeze out the water from the beauty blender and if you see more dirt coming out, again put it under the running warm water and rub it. But, if clean water comes out, it means that your beauty blender is completely clean.
    • With the help of a thick tissue, rub the beauty blender properly to dry it out. Your blender is ready and hygienic for the next use.
