Beauty blenders have become a staple tool for any makeup lover, but cleaning them can be a pain in the butt. There’s always so much rinsing and squeezing and after all is done they never really feel like new again. That’s why when Twitter discovered an easy hack to achieving a like-new sponge, people were excited.
A Twitter user by the name Jaycoko_ noticed that if you put your beauty blenders in a cup with soap and water in the microwave for one minute they come out good as new, with minimum effort.

This was after microwaving them for 1 min, wringing out the dirty water, microwaving it again in the same water for 1 min, then drying them. Even the pointed shape of my beauty blender is back 😭 pic.twitter.com/LcbQdhhOQB

Some people clearly didn’t listen to Jaycoko_’s instructions properly and missed out on an important detail.

One thing is for sure, if you do try out this method at home: be careful! Once you microwave the sponge, do not immediately pick it up out of the water and ring it out using your hands. The water is extremely hot and will burn you. Let it sit a bit. Happy cleaning!
