You wet the brush and you can wash it with some type of shampoo or soap that you've got laying around the house. I currently have been using an antibacterial wash for mine. They do have brush cleanser though, I don't know where you would purchase that though.

You could do a search and find a million helpful hints on this subject. You might enjoy some of the previous threads dedicated to this.

To wash my brushes, I get them wet in warm water, put a little baby wash in my hand, smoosh the brush around in the suds gently and maybe squeeze the suds through a little. Then rinse under warm water. Blot really well by gently squeezing it in a bath towel. Then let air dry until the next day when I do my makeup again. (Takes all of 15 seconds once you're done it a few times - dries easily overnight) Any gentle soap, baby shampoo, baby wash, or even cetaphil gentle facial cleanser has worked fine for me.

i typically wash mine once a week with lukewarm water and baby shampoo. i shake them out to get the excess water out and then i lay them flat to dry overnight. they're good as new in the morning ;)

I am using my DHC cleansing oil lately as it cleans out all makeup pigment and is super gentle. I wash my brushes about once a week, depending on how much I've used each one.

I apply a little onto the brush dry and work it through the brush a bit (downward strokes, squeezing it or something...that sounds suggestive :lol:). Then I rinse it and keep working through it til the water runs clear and no more pigment comes out of the brush.

Sometimes I use Cetaphil since my cleansing oil isn't cheap.

A little jojoba oil on the cleansed brush helps keep it soft too, especially if it's natural bristles. Just a tiny bit, and then maybe one more rinse so it isn't oily.

I lay them flat to dry overnight too.
