I had the chance to see how a brush cleaning soap works and I was amazed.It was the Kosmetik Kosmo Pinsel Phoenix. (Kosmetik Kosmo is a German brand created by a German Youtube Guru).It really cleaned,conditioned and revived the brushes.When I wanted to order a soap for myself ,sadly the price scared me a bit.8,99 for soap? Naaah!
And because I am a DIY girl I came up with my version.
The prototype successfully passed the test.I first made a tiny batch,because wasting product is not cool
180 gr of glycerine soap (can be scented,just take the cheapest!)
1 tablespoon of any hair conditioner
2 drops of dish soap
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon antiseptic/hand sanitizer
a jar/plastic container with an airtight lid (I used the jar of a hair mask which has a screw lid)
Take a cheese grater and finely shave the soap.Mix the soap shavings with the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and knead (latex gloves ftw)
Put into your jar/container and press firmly.
Dry with an open lid for 3-5 days.
|It should look like this,once you are done with kneading and filling it in the jar|
It is really worth the wait.Not only did you save a lot of money , you also have no more excuse not to clean your brushes!!!
The soap costs 69 cents and the rest of the ingredients cost maybe another 30-40 cents.
Part 2 will follow in a few days,once my soap is cured.I will also show you how to use it.
