I've tried every method to clean this super sponge (including my dishwasher...what??), and here's what I have found the be the fastest:
Solid cleansers! These are like soap but are specially formulated for brushes and sponges. I even make my own (#beautynerd) because I'm such a fan. They are awesome and even better for travel. Here are some of my faves:
cheapest--The Master's Brush Cleaner and Preserver is designed for artist brushes, but is a cheap choice for spot cleaning. It has a lemon scent and comes in 1 oz and 2 5/8 oz sizes. Find it at craft stores, like Michaels, for around $3.67-$5.99
value--Clean Brush Shampoo is what I'll be using today. It comes in a variety of scents using goat's milk. They also have olive oil-based cleansers too in different scents, but the goat's milk cleans a little better/faster in my opinion. It's $10-$15 for 4 oz. Find it online from retailers or at frendsbeauty.com.
So how do you clean beauty blenders? Easy. First, you'll need a solid cleanser of your choice. I gave a few examples above in different prices points. If in a pinch, I suggest a gentle soap. Of course you'll need a dirty beautyblender to clean. I'm kinda embarrassed to post the pic of how dirty mine is!

- Everyone at work is very sick. It breaks my heart when kids are sick, but ooh do I cringe every time I hear a sneeze or a cough, especially if it's getting on me! I've never washed my hands so much in my life.
- I can't believe it's been a year since the Atlanta Snow Jam. It took me 3 hours to drive 10 miles. ..and I left early! I remember had Netflix streaming on my phone when no one was moving.
