How Do You Clean Makeup Brushes With Vinegar?


Cleaning your makeup brushes with vinegar and water once a week, or every other week, helps keep the brushes in good condition. All you need is water, vinegar, a small bowl and a towel.

  1. Combine the vinegar and water

    Combine 1/2 cup of warm water with 1/4 cup vinegar. Mix the liquids in a small bowl.

  2. Clean your brushes

    Stir your makeup brushes gently into the mixture to dissolve the build-up and to clean the brushes.

  3. Rinse your brushes

    To get rid of the excess residue of product build-up, rinse the makeup brushes with warm water. This also removes the smell of the vinegar.

  4. Lay your brushes on a towel to dry

    Lay your brushes on a clean towel in order to keep them clean while they dry. Leave your brushes to dry overnight.
