The struggle is real when it comes to cleaning those makeup brushes once a week. If we’re being honest, it’s all too easy to skip a week or two. But don’t forget: dirty brushes harbor dirt and bacteria that can cause breakouts and irritation!
That said, there are silicone brush cleansing matts on the market that make getting the job done so much easier. While they’re convenient, they can cost upwards of $30 bucks or more. But you can actually DIY your very own cleaning board…with a clipboard!
This project will set you back only a few bucks (clipboard and hot glue, included!). The plastic clipboard is a great dupe because it’s waterproof, and the textured surface helps break up dirt and grime just as well as those fancy designer mats.

Yes for my 100 paint brushes
Wich editing app do u use?
I actually found at walmarts in the cookware section a very small "mainstays two-sided scrubbie" for cookware that has very short bristles on one side and a tiny bit longer bristles on the other side and it's made from silicone and dishwasher safe for under $3 dollars and it works great to clean makeup brushes! I wasn't going to pay a lot of money for something to clean brushes! The clipboard idea is a great idea also!
Yes about to make it right now
After washing the brushes how will I dry it? Like do I need to brush them in some cloth?
Yasss I'll use it
5 minute crafts did that on their video still this show you how to do it better

OMG! thank you so much!! I made this for my mom and it WORKS!!! thank you thank you thank you!!!!!

Does really matter what design you put for the brushes….wouldn't it just clean them anyway or will it ruin the brushes? 😕
Ĭ bought this bruush set and love every thing about it
d bruushes super soft and it make my make-up daily super fun. İ become a make-up lover because of it. LOL
I am sorry but can this be done with normal glue (Fevicol) , or will that come off with the water?
Don't have a hot glue gun!
I don't really have the patience to make my own, so would probably buy it, but it's good to know! Question though, why the different bumps and lines and such, why not just all dotted or diagonal lines?
I saw this on Instagram who else did????
do you use hot water or cold water to clean them
OMG- BRILLIANT! I'm making this in the morning! you all rock!
I use a pore refiner pad 👍🏻
this is really helpful
I made one! cant wait to test it out!
