Here's how often you should be cleaning your beauty blender (and it will shock you)

Pass the soap...

Oh, beauty blender! How did we live without you?

The humble sponge has the ability to perfectly apply our foundation, blend our concealer and smooth on our serums, but how often do you clean yours? One a month, if that? You may want to sit down for this revelation.

According to the makers of the much-loved sponge, you should be cleaning it after every single use. Gasp!

Revealing how to use and maintain the sponge, the founders shared the 'wet.squeeze.bounce' method. This is how it works...

1. Wet: Wet the beauty blender with water.
2. Squeeze: Squeeze out the excess liquid, using a towel if available.
3. Bounce: Foundation, powder or any other complexion product across the face for flawless results.
4. Cleanse: After each use to help maintain the integrity of the blender's exclusive material replace.

"We recommend replacing your beauty blender every three months," they added.

Anyone else going to be giving their beauty blender a good old scrub tonight?

We are ALL about beauty hacks to make our lives easier and our utensils cleaner - whether it's teabags, the stuff we put in our tea or the wonders of tech.

So when we stumbled across this about how to clean a beauty blender, we were ready to feel the same level of satisfaction that Dr Pimple Popper must experience on the daily.

Because we all know that no matter how much you clean your blenders, they're never completely residue-free. And, of course, with all those terrifying videos of people cutting them in half to reveal all sorts of grime, we're keen to keep ours clean. So, what did the people of Reddit teach us?

You can use your microwave to clean them. Come again? User wrote,

"Weirdest tip I’ve ever heard - but actually does a pretty good job"

"Half fill a mug/cup with water and squirt some dish soap in! Pop in the beauty blender and put in the microwave for 1 minute. Really gets a lot of the makeup out!"

"(Disclaimer to be careful when touching the blender when it’s first come out of the microwave because it is boiling hot)."

ghostly_kitten agreed, saying that she uses this tactic, too:

"This is what I do too!"

"Pro tip: Don't forget it sitting in the microwave overnight. I did this once and it absorbed basically the entire mug of water and no matter how long I dried it out for, it never went back to a normal size. I accidentally DIYed a body blende[r] before it was mainstream."

People were beside themselves with amazement and same, tbh.

And while the people of Reddit may be amazed, one Twitter user didn't quite get the memo that you need to put the sponge in a cup with soapy water, before placing it in the microwave.

User @VTT_torii left the internet in stitches when her attempt at the microwave hack didn't go quite to plan. After watching videos of other Twitter users who had successful results with the beauty hack, she tried it herself:

I’m deleting Twitter. I’m pissed. Wtf

However, rather than being left with a squeaky-clean sponge, she instead melted her beauty blender. And so ensued a hilarious thread:

my fatass thought that was marinara sauce inside the goddamn beauty blender

— _nik (@phuckawff)

LMFAOOO I’m sorry sis but wtf

— baby kay (@kissitbetterkay)

OMG ur supposed to put it in soap water 🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️🤦🏾‍♀️

The lesson we can take from this? Do NOT put your dry beauty blender in the microwave. Just don't.
