Women know, that no matter how hard you try to keep the makeup bag clean, it’s just simply impossible. After a while, if you get all the makeup products out, the inside of the bag looks like a colorful abstract painting.
How to clean it?
Easy: you wash it. But before washing it, it needs to be soaked in hot water and detergent. Or water and stain remover. It’s a little more complicated if you use waterproof makeup, but not impossible to clean.
You can also add baking soda to the soaking water to help get out the makeup stains. And you can also wipe the inside with a microfiber cloth soaked in white vinegar.
You can turn it inside out and wash it with hot water and plain soap. Or you can make a soft paste made of water and baking soda and wash it with that.
To keep it clean, after washing it, you have to also clean everything inside. And that means every makeup item in there. Because if the inside of the makeup bag is dirty, clearly all the makeup items are dirty, as well.
You already took everything out to washing the makeup bag. Now, just take one item at a time and clean them. You can use liquid makeup remover to do that. Including for your brushes.
You can also use antibacterial tissues. Or a soft cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol.
If we’re not talking about waterproof makeup, it should be enough to turn the makeup bag inside out and wipe it down with a makeup pad and makeup remover. If not, soak and wash.
