Fill the wash basin with warm water
First of all, fill the wash basin with warm water so that the makeup sponges can be cleaned in it. Make sure that the water is either not too hot or not too cold as that could damage the sponge. Wait until the sink is half full and close the tap after that.
Add shampoo or dish soap
When the sink is half-filled, pour dish soap in the water. Do not add too much of soap as that would be damaging. An amount that can make the water a little soapy is enough for the procedure. Mix the soap in the water so that it is well combined. Place the sponges in warm water for some time so that they get wet.
Rub the makeup sponges in the water
Once the sponges are fully wet, rub them with your fingers so that all the makeup is washed away. Make sure the sponges are well soaked with the soap so that the dirt is properly released. Keep rubbing until all the makeup is removed.
Rinse the makeup sponges
Once you are sure that all the sponges are washed with makeup, rinse them with cold water until all the soap is released. If there is still soap left in the sponge, it may cause irritation to your skin when you use it for makeup the next time.
Dry on a towel
After all the sponges are rinsed with water, place them on a dry towel and wait for them to dry completely. It is good to turn on the fan as that would help in drying the sponges fast.
