I’m a lazy makeup artist – this is the effortless way I clean my makeup brushes and sponges using one household item

MAKEUP tools should be cleaned anywhere from once a week to every two weeks, but it can feel bothersome to keep up with the thorough task.

Luckily, a makeup artist who goes by Sereen shared her magic method of cleaning her makeup application products using little to no effort.

"Confession of a lazy makeup artist," the voiceover in her social media clip said, setting the tone of the video.

Sereen placed all of her makeup-drenched brushes and sponges in a checkered pillowcase.

She then poured a generous amount of Ajax dish detergent all over the items.

The makeup guru tied a knot on the pillowcase, secured the items inside, and tossed the pillowcase in the washing machine.

She simply set it to a 'gentle' cycle and pressed start, letting it do its thing.

The next morning, Sereen grabbed the pillowcase out of the washing machine and inspected the items.

The brushes and sponges looked as good as new, taking on a pretty clean appearance compared to their previous state.

In the comments, Sereen mentioned that she doesn't often use this method to clean her brushes, just when they "accumulate" and she's "tired."
