100% Natural Make-Up Brush Cleansing Solution for Under $10

I had been using MAC’s makeup brush cleansers for years until some months ago when I looked at the ingredient list on the back of the bottle and shuddered at the chemicals listed. MAC must have realized how off-putting those ingredients sound because they don’t bother to list them on their website.

Since then, I’ve been washing my brushes with a simple blend of warm water, pure castile soap, and hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide, a natural antiseptic, sanitizes and disinfects, killing bacteria that may be hanging out in between the bristles of the make-up brushes.

Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap – this one here – is all natural, certified organic with no added fragrance and no synthetic detergents or preservatives. It’s packaged in 100% post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, and the company is committed to “environmental protection, ethical sourcing, and fair trade practices.”

The Recipe: Combine 8 fl oz of warm water, a teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide, and 1/2 a teaspoon of castile liquid soap into a bottle and shake lightly to mix. And voila, you have it! With under $10 you’ll have enough castile soap and hydrogen peroxide to make your own 100% natural cleansing solution for the whole year!

How often do you wash your make-up brushes?
