What's your favorite brush cleaner?

Like Tree3Likes

I just posted a review of my favorite, but It's not easy to get on the ground.
I'm looking for something not too expensive, but also dries quickly. Thoughts?

Oh, and take a look at my review :-)

I just use a mild soap. It works just fine for my paintbrushes.
Baby shampoo is just fine for my personal brushes. But for my kit I like Ben Nye. It cleans and sanitizes. I dont like Mac's cleaner.
No MAS.

Thanks, Ladies! I guess i should have been more clear. I'm looking for more of a dupe for my Japonesque. Washing with soap and the like doesn't really allow for fast drying. Anyway, I'll keep on the hunt :-) Thanks, again!

Ben Nye would be a good dupe. It's either the same price or a smidge cheaper (minus shipping though).

I use Dr. Bronners baby castille soap. With the light blue label IIRC. Cleans really well and seems to dry quicker than baby shampoo did for me.

I was on another beauty site today. And a pro MUA said not to use baby shampoo when doing your cleaning post-event. Instead use shampoo for color treated hair. She also said a good homemade brush cleaner is 1 part water/1 part alcohol/1 drop shampoo.
Spiralli and WurlyLox like this.

I watched a video earlier where the makeup artist suggested using 99% alcohol. It is supposed to clean and disinfect while drying quickly to allow you to use the brush again right away. Many comments said that 70% isopropyl alcohol would work just as well.

I've been using a facial cleanser and water. I have heard that would work since the facial cleanser removes makeup from the face, therefore it would clean it from brushes. I would imagine this would only be for brushes that are being used on one person, not on various people such as a makeup artist would.

here's my brush that won't come clean no matter what i use. you know that cha cha tint does sort of stain my cheeks but it doesn't bother me. it eventually comes off. i guess i'll just live with my used to be white brush.

Regular baby shampoo, aside from the recent formaldehyde controversy that could lead to contact dermatitis, people don't realize that baby shampoo is not only much more abrasive than the label suggests - but also that it does nothing to preserve the COLOR of your brush hair.

Shampoo for color-treated hair is fantastic. I use Pureology because it doesn't have sulfates and a lot of really god-awful ingredients. Nothing is perfect, but I do try to be conscious of what I'm using. A $7 travel bottle of Pureology lasts a few months. I have brushes that have been around since I started doing makeup almost 10 years ago!

Also when I can score free products, I actually do like the Bobbi Brown brush shampoo as well. Not something I'd pay a fortune for, but a great product for those of you that are wondering.

Hope that helps"

I use a cheap face wash to clean my brushes.
Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.
