    hi there blurblur, interesting nick

    you can either use shampoo or bodywash to wash! here are my washing steps:

    brushes


    Take a big mug/cup/container, fill it with warm water and body wash, twirl brushes, making sure the color gets out!! i usually repeat 2-3 times..

    sponges

    just use warm water and soap, rinse over it and wash it like how you wash your clothes!! like squeeze and blahblah..

    *IMPORtant*

    Always dry your brushes FLAT!! might take longer than letting it hang, but its definitely worth the wait. oh, wash at LEASTTT once a month. best is once every 2 wks. hope my 2 worth helps!

        I think it's generally okay to wash your brushes once a week or a fornight

        It would be good to use baby soap or shampoo as I personally feel they are gentler and thus won't strip the brush hairs or make them dry

        Just watch out to not get water into the furrel of the brush (where the metal area holds the hairs of the brush)!

          I wash my brushes once in 2-3 weeks time. I think that's fine in my case because I never carry my brush outside for touching up. Everytime I use it, I'd use it on my clean face. Anyhoo.. I clean brushes using shampoo and conditioner for natural hair ones. For synthetic hair, I'll just use only shampoo.

          Another thing, I don't soak my brushes in water or whatever liquid. MAC SA told me, that'd make the glue loose. So I clean my brushes one by one.. like pick one brush -> wet it -> shampoo -> conditioner.. and next one.

              I shampoo my brushes!

              Just a quick rinse with water and shampoo. Try to clean it more often, it's easier that way.

                    First I use Clinique brush cleanser (the spray) and then I use FancL Washing powder. Works well!

                        I use my facial wash to clean them once a week. Swirl in the cup then lay on a piece of tissue paper to dry.

                            when i bought the mac brush cleanser, was told that I still need to use shampoo to wash my brushes once in a while to make them cleaner

                              For sponges I use Fancl Makeup puff cleanser. Cleanses very well and all the powder accumulated on the puff just disappears!

                              For brushes I use body foam to wash them. Put a bit in water to dissolve the soap then wash my brushes in it.

                              And i didn't know cannot let water wet the furrel.. oppps!
