How To Clean Beautyblender 6 Different Ways

There are two kinds of people in this world: the people who clean their makeup tools religiously, and the people who don't.

When it comes to beautyblenders (a.k.a. the holy grail of makeup sponges in the beauty world), inconsistent washing can make them a pain when you finally decide to clean them.

Those little sponges can absorb liquid makeup way below the surface, and you can have a time rinsing it all out.

Luckily you won't have to go through trial and error to figure out the best way to bring your beautyblenders back to their original colour (or close enough, anyway).

Our friends at Buzzfeed put six different methods to the test to see which was the best at helping wring out the most foundation possible.

Check out the video above and decide for yourself if bar soap or baby wash works well enough, or if it's worth it to splurge on that beautyblender cleanser.
