Re: Cleaning and drying makeup brushes

This is how I dry my brushes using hair ties (rubber bands work too).  Hang them on a towel rod.

@SilleeMee this is how I hang mine also. I use rubber bands on the bottom part of a pants hanger.

@AngelPuppy1   I lay them across the container that holds them once they're dry.

Re: Cleaning and drying makeup brushes

Lots of good answers here. I put mine sideways across a glass and in my bathroom windowsill. I keep the bottom half of the window covered all the time so they're out of sight there. The afternoon sun comes in through this window so they dry nicely.

@@AngelPuppy1  Can you use your kitchen counter to dry your brushes?

On the rare occasions that I wash mine, I fold a towel a couple of times, and lay it on top of the chest of drawers in my bedroom. Then I lay the brushes on it with the heads hanging over the edge.

I do the same, put a hand towel on my dresser and have the brush head hang over the edge.
