Cleaning My Brushes | eBay Silicone Oven Mitt

I know you all will probably have heard of this product for cleaning brushes but I only just got round to using mine a few weeks ago. I bought this silicone oven mitt on eBay for £2.89 a while back after seeing it as a dupe for the Sigma Cleaning Mitt which retails at over £30!

I really love using this to clean my brushes for a few reasons;

1. You can wash brushes in really hot water without burning your hands – I always clean my brushes with almost boiling hot water to make sure they are really clean but when I use my hands it can take a while as I have to wait for the water to cool down a little every time.

2. The ridges on the mitt help to deeper clean the brushes and get every last bit of make-up out.

3. It was a bargain at £2.89!

4. It’s so quick and easy; I’ve never washed my brushes so quickly and they were super clean too!

I use either my ELF Brush Cleaner or if my brushes are really dirty I treat them to my NYR Palmarosa Facial Wash which is a more natural cleaner with anti-bacterial properties!

I would definitely recommend trying this for cleaning your brushes – it’s so quick and easy – I’ve never enjoyed cleaning my brushes much but this takes all the hassle out of it!

  1. Heh, I've never heard of this! Smart idea 🙂 I'm way too lazy with cleaning brushes but 2.89 instead of over 30 is brilliant. Thanks for sharing! X

    I did the same as you and bought a cheap silicone mitt to dupe the Sigma one, but I made the mistake of using it in the kitchen once, and it's never quite made it to brush washing! I should really pick up another 🙂
