Makeup Brush Cleaner

1 ½ cups warm water

1 Tbsp shampoo

5 drops of tea tree oil

Mix the water, shampoo, and tea tree oil in a bowl or jar and place next to a sink. Collect your makeup brushes and rinse each under warm water to remove any makeup that will rinse away easily. One at a time, swirl each brush in the soapy solution for about 10 seconds, remove it, and swirl it in the palm of your hand. This will suds up the solution in the brush (if your shampoo gets sudsy) and add some friction to the cleaning process clean to remove any deep down dirt. Rinse well, reshape, and lay the brushes on their side to air dry. Repeat with all of the brushes you wish to clean.
