DIY- my makeup brush cleaning experience

Hi friends,
Today for the first time i am going to share with you my DIY experience with makeup brush cleaning that i did this Sunday .I know you might be thinking that its the same old boring topic...but as it is my first time so thought to share with you all.I hope you all will like my effort of posting it....I consider myself as one of the most laziest person in this world but when i start this cleansing process i found it is very easy process and took near about 1 and half hour to do the whole thing....

Okay here are my brushes...I know they are very few and all are old ,as i brought all the brushes ages before...now thinking of buying new brush set replacing these old...

Anyways,here are the things i used to clean my brushes :-
I took A baby Shampoo.
A conditioner pouch.
Kara skin care wipes.
A towel.
A glass bowl.
Some Luke warm water.

Firstly I remove all the traces of gel eyeliner and lipstick from lip brush using a cleansing wipes of KARA..[ oops i forget to click the pic...:P]

Then I took some Luke warm water in glass bowl and pour two to three drops of Shampoo.

Mix the shampoo well in water and immerse the brushes into the water and leave it for 1 hour...

After 1 hour see the water change the color due to wash out makeup residue.

Then I wash each and every brush under water separately.

Again took some fresh like warm water.

Emptied the entire content of the pouch of conditioner in water and mix it well .

Then again immerse all the brush for 10 minutes in that water.

Followed by wash with plain water.Okay you can see i wash a sponge too...i am so lazy that i don't bother to wash it separately so wash it along with my brushes...and it works :) :)

And finally soak all the brush in towel separately and leave it overnight to let it dry naturally.

So here comes to an end of my post .
I hope you all like it my first attempt considering any flaw [if any ].
