Blending Sponge Care 101
Reusable makeup sponges are an eco-friendly alternative to basic foam sponges. Like all other reusable makeup tools, however, these sponges need to be cleaned on a regular basis.
Let's get started:
Dampen the reusable sponge. Run your reusable sponge under warm water and squeeze it to remove any excess.
Clean the reusable sponge with liquid soap. Apply a dime-sized drop of liquid soap (i.e., Desert Essence brand is our favorite! 🙂), into your hand and roll the sponge between your palms. When the sponge has absorbed all of the soap, rinse it under warm water and squeeze out the excess water. Repeat this process until the water coming from the sponge is clear.
Dry your reusable sponge. Once your sponge is clean, squeeze out all of the excess water using a clean towel. Repeat this step a couple of times until you feel the sponge is mostly dry. Lay sponge on a clean towel overnight to completely dry. As your reusable sponge dries, it will shrink down to its original size.
We recommend you replace your Blending Sponge every 2-3 months, depending on how well you take care of it.
