This hack for cleaning your Beauty Blender is revolutionary.

Any makeup-lover will understand the eternal struggle of trying to clean a well-loved Beauty Blender. At first they're bright pink and spotless, but after a couple of uses, foundation and concealer stains cover its entirety, making it a murky shade of brown.

While washing makeup brushes and sponges is hard enough, spending time cleaning a Beauty Blender only for the stains to remain is incredibly frustrating.

However, thanks to this new hack that was shared on Twitter, cleaning a Beauty Blender has never been so easy (or successful).

Simply put a bit of Fairy Liquid and enough water to cover the sponge in a microwave-safe cup, add the Beauty Blender and microwave for one minute.

Be careful when going to remove the Beauty Blender because the water will be quite hot and squeeze it out to reveal your good-as-new sponge. Depending on how stained your Beauty Blender is, you might have to repeat the steps again.

The hack has been retweeted over 12,500 times since it was shared, with plenty of satisfying results.
