It really works.
If your precious Beauty Blender needs some serious TLC, the fastest way to get it back to its hot pink glory is by popping it in the microwave.
The bestselling make-up sponges can get pretty grimy with daily use, so regular cleaning is essential if you’d rather not spread bacteria all over your face every day.
But sponge cleaning solutions don’t always get the Beauty Blender back to its original light and fluffy glory.
Now gals across the globe are raving about a new one-minute hack.
It all began with this tweet.
Put your dirty beauty blender in a cup with soap and water in the microwave on 1 minute ? thank me later ?

The advice is to nuke your sponge (in soapy water) for ten seconds, then rinse it in cold water and squeeze it out before popping it back in for a second clean.
A word of warning though; don’t skip the soapy water step…
