Beauty Tip: How to Remove Stains From Brushes



I recently saw this product in Youtube video on Makeup By RenRen's blog. She mentioned how it was great for removing stubborn stains from brushes. So, I decided to pink some up at Michael's (craft store) to try. All I can say is that Pink Soap is fabulous.

To use, I simply squeezed a small amount of the soap into the palm of my hand, swirled the end of my brush in the soap, and rinsed. It literally removed stains from my brushes that had been there for ages.

I definitely recommend it!

  14. Hmmm..cool. I just use my Neutrogena Deep Clean facial cleanser. Removes out all the stains even the tough ones. One day I figure to try it out since it says deep cleaning penetration, and it worked. Removed all the pesky stains. But I will definately look into this one, might work well, better or could be cheaper. Will look into it.

  15. I'm gonna look into that. I'm sure it's gotta be less expensive than MAC's Brush Remover.
