PSA: You can clean your beauty blender with a microwave


Ahhh the beauty blender. This little sponge has changed many lives in its time but there's something that isn't ideal about them and that's cleaning them. They're really bloody hard to clean tbh.

We'd almost resigned to the fact that we have to buy new blenders every time we want some clean ones but then the internet brought us this gem of info:

Cosmo decided to put an internet hack to the test and here's how it worked:

Step 1: Find a mug, put some dishwashing liquid in a glass, half filled with water and put the dirty Beauty Blender in.

Put the mug in the microwave, set the timer to one minute on full and press start.

Take it out of the microwave and squeeze the excess water out (IT'S HOT BTW). This is the part where your Beauty Blender should come out all shiny and new. If it's not perfect, just repeat the step! NICE!
