Clean Your Make Up Brushes as Part of a Personal Infection Control Plan

Summer Germblog! 
 
Summer is coming to a close WAY too fast! Isn’t that always the way? I had a list of about 25 projects to finish and I’m on #4. Oh well! There’s always fall break, right? Before my mind gets back to school, I wanted to share with you one more Pinterest cleaning project!
 
One morning, I caught an episode of Rachael Ray. She had a cleaning expert on the show who had some kind of hand held machine that he would swipe over something and it would read how many germs are living on that item (very scientific explanation, I know). Gross, right? Well he did baby toys, which had a bunch and household items, which had a bunch, but then he did a toothbrush and I about died. There were a TON!
 
So, I started looking around my bathroom at other things in there that I use often and don’t get cleaned often and my eyes landed on my makeup brushes. I use them every day and have never ONCE (don’t judge!) cleaned them. Eeeewww! Luckily, I’d seen a cleaning pin on Pinterest. I pinned it to the OUTFOX page and decided to give it a try. 
 
I started with my most used brushes, a glass of pretty warm water and some baby shampoo. I swirled around my biggest brush first and
this is what happened. I’m almost embarrassed to show you. 
 
Gross! That’s a lot of old bronzer. I even emptied the cup and did it again. 
 
Then I did the rest of my brushes together, since I knew they wouldn’t be that bad. Then I shaped them all and let them air dry on a paper towel. 
 
This was an easy one! My brushes feel so much better when I use them now. I read that you should clean them once a week (…right…) but I’ll probably do it once a month-ish. They really felt so much better once they were clean. 
 
Well, my next post will be back to the classroom, so just a quick reminder before I sign off! One of the biggest payoffs I noticed was when I THANKED MY JANITOR! They work so hard all summer and have done a lot. They have a really yucky job so make sure you show them some gratitude as you’re heading back to school. I’ll try to find more Pinterest projects to do in the classroom and pass them along! 
 
Goodbye Germs!
