Homemade Brush Cleanser

Monica asked how to make homemade brush cleanser. You can buy one from Mac for a little over $10....but you can make your own for soooo much less!!!!! Pictured here are the items that you will need. The brush cleanser bottle from MAC is ideal to use again for your homemade cleanser so DON'T throw it away!!! You will need:

- 1 cup bottled or distilled water
- 1/4 cup alcohol ( I use 99%) This will be your disinfecting, sanitizing & antibacterial agent
- 1/2 TBSP dish soap (if it can cut grease on your dishes, think of the grease on your brushes)
- 1/2 TBSP gentle shampoo (I used baby shampoo)
- 1 TBSP spray leave-in-conditioner (not cream) to condition bristles

Stir GENTLY!!!!! You do not want the soaps to start foaming or to sud up. After it is all mixed together pour it into your container and there is your inexpensive homemade brush cleanser.

Hey there, Jenni! It's me! The one who always calls you "Jennifer" by mistake!!! Sorry! Hey! I think it would be wonderful if you had this cleanser recipe, along with the tutorial and the list of suggested brushes to use (and pictures) ALL on the side panel of your blog site so that they would be easy to find and access! I know it's a lot, but if it's possible, it sure would be helpful! Thank you for all of this information!! It's great!
