How often do you wash your makeup brushes? Dirty makeup brushes are more dangerous than we think: bacteria love consuming our makeup products, making them the perfect breeding grounds. I know that for some makeup lovers cleaning their makeup brushes is the worst! But, at the same time, we can't run away from this routine, the only thing in our power is making this task easier. Fortunately, few tools can make you love this hygiene practice and today I'm going to show you this Makeup Brush Washing Mat* that turned my brush washing routine into a pleasure.

Before I tried out this silicone mat, I was using an ancient facial cleaning pad. The idea of this brush mat is basically the same, but it is so much bigger and more comfortable to use than my old facial pad. The makeup washing mat is made of very soft and bendable silicone. The surface of the mat is texturized and features seven different silicone textures for all of your makeup brushes.

You can use finer textures for smaller natural brushes and rougher textures for bigger brushes. The back part of the mat has five suction holders, so you can simply stick this mat to the wall of your bathroom, window, or even table and forget about it till the next bath time.

How to use this washing mat? Actually, it is very simple and fun! All you need to do is equip yourself with your favorite makeup brush cleaner and go to your bathroom. Stick your brush for washing the mat to the bottom of your sink or any other comfortable surface, which you can rinse with soap and water. Pour some brush cleaner and water on the mat, gently 'massage' the bristles of your makeup brush on the surface of the mat, and rinse it with warm water. Your makeup brushes are fresh and clean, just as new!

After I tried this pad for the first time, I was very surprised and even a little bit shocked because grease and pigment dissolved and disappeared from the bristles of the brush in no time. All I had to do was to rub it softly against the mat with a bit of water. This trick worked with every single brush in my collection, though big powder brushes demand more water to rinse the soap.

 Overall, I can recommend this mat for everyone, who wants to turn a boring washing routine into something more fun. This silicone brush washing mat is available in six bright colors, so you don't have to stick to a plain black color like I did!
