We all know the importance of clean makeup brushes—and yet, most people still don’t wash them as often as they should. (Guilty!) We can’t blame anyone, though. It’s a messy and time-consuming process. Still, there’s no way around it, unless you’re willing to risk a nasty breakout. Cringe.

Fortunately, there are tools that make this ritual less of a chore. Take the i-Heart Brush Cleaning Pad, for example, an über-cute invention by PRO STUDIO:
Think of this palm-sized tool as a washboard for makeup brushes. With its patterned ridges, the textured surface helps rake off residue stuck in dirty bristles. This requires minimal effort on your part. In fact, all you have to do is swirl your brush over the pad with some brush cleaner, and voilà! Soft, spotless bristles in seconds.

See this baby in action below. Sidebar: this was so much fun.


STEP 1: Insert your fingers into the opening of the pad. Make sure you have a stable grip.
STEP 2: Add your brush cleanser on top of the pad.
STEP 3: Wet the bristles of your makeup brush. Keep the head pointed downwards to prevent water from seeping into the base.
STEP 4: Move the brush across the textured pad. Repeat until there’s no residue left.
STEP 5: Then, rinse the brush and lay it flat to dry. NOTE: Don’t forget to rinse the cleansing pad too.
And there you have it! Guess who’ll be excited to wash their brushes from now on?
