Makeup sponges are undoubtedly a revolutionary invention. But they can also be very dirty and are one of the leading ways bacteria can get onto your face. Anyone who owns and uses makeup sponges knows how dirty they can get very quickly. And since they go straight onto your skin, cleaning them is one of the most important and best things you can do for your skincare routine. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be complicated.
How to clean makeup sponges
The key to cleaning a makeup sponge is ensuring you use enough friction that you actually get a good clean, but not so much that you damage the delicate product.
The first method is to use a bar of soap.
To do this, squeeze your makeup sponge under running water until it’s completely soaked and expands in size.
