    Anastacia: I tend to wash big brushes less too as they take longer to dry. But as long as you wash them regularly, that’s all that matters. And I use baby shampoo too :)

    Dao: me too, if I barely use a brush I don’t feel the need to wash it every week. But I always do that with those brushes that I regularly use.

    Dee: I do that too, I think makeup remover/baby wipes are very handy to spot clean brushes.

    Jenn: as long as you wash them regularly, that’s ok, just don’t wait weeks ;)

    Nikki: I think that’s the best way to keep your brushes clean :) I prefer to spot clean them with a brush cleanser but if I run out of it, baby/makeup remover wipes work well too.

    prettybeautiful: I hope you remember often then ;) If you have sensitive skin it’s important to wash brushes often as they can harbour dirt and bacteria and cause problems for the skin.

    Vonvon: I was brushes that use with creams/gels more often too as they could easily harbour bacteria. For the other brushes once a week or fortnight is ok. :)

    fabulessbeauty: that’s good, washing them regularly is always best :)

    Tavia: I’d wash them anyway cos brushes can harbour dirt and bacteria and could cause problems for the skin. But as long as your skin is ok and you wash them regularly, then that’s ok. I agree that washing them after using dramatic, dark makeup is necessary :)

    I wash them every time I use them.
    Even though I’m well out of my teens, my skin still breaks out + since I was a contact lens wearer, I developed a habit of making sure everything that comes near my eyes is clean.

      Ana, that is a great habit you have. Brushes work better when they are clean and less prone to cause problems for the skin and eyes. :)
