Twitter Just Uncovered the Most Amazing Beauty Blender Cleaning Hack

Keeping our beauty applicators clean is super important for healthy skin and great makeup looks. Definitely one of the harder tools to clean can be the beauty blender, but Twitter as ~always~ found the perfect solution to all our makeup sponge purifying struggles.

Here’s how it works: Put your dirty beauty blender in a cup with soap and water, pop it in the microwave for one minute, and thank the Twitter beauty goddesses later.

While we haven’t actually tested out this trick yet, some Twitter and Reddit users have tried the hack and accidentally melted their beauty blenders (yikes). Any volunteers willing to microwave their beauty blender in the name of scientific discovery?

Still, the videos don’t lie! If this truly works, then mind = blown.
