I know because he told me himself! And here I’ve been buying overpriced brush cleaner this whole time!

For more gems of wisdom, follow him on Twitter or visit his website, SamFine.com. My girl Erin Scandalous did a great review of his new DVD, and now I need it in my life ASAP! Click here to buy his DVD, Fine: The Basics of Beauty.

Thanks for the money-saving tip, Mr. Fine! I’m a big fan!!

Ew...I think I'll stick to baby shampoo. Something about using dish soap doesn't sit right in my soul lol.

I've always worn Johnson's Baby Shampoo on my brushes and it works fine too! Some brush cleaners which contain alcohol can actually decrease the brush's life as they are too harsh on the delicate brush hairs.

I have used Johnsons baby shampoo or anti-baterial hand soap.

I've always used the cheap clarifying shampoos to wash my make-up brushes as I do my hair brushes. Never even thought twice about it. Hmmm. Well glad to know I'm in good company.

I've been using dish washing liquid and shampoo for years to wash my brushes. Some of us already know we don't have to buy a new product when they're made with much of the same detergents but packaged differently.

I usually use Dove soap or shampoo. I'm too cheap to buy brush cleaner.

I use this dish washing liquid religously, its the best. I also use it for stained or oily clothing.

I'm not surprised but it great that Mr Fine shared that openly. Recently, in Tiffanys the assistant advised me in a similar fashion and it worked well. It would great to hear of similar useful tips.

I just saw on youtube, MichellePhan does the antibacterial dishsoap, but also adds in some olive oil since the soap will dry out the bristle brushes.

ok so this is what you do you use that and also extra virgen olive oil to clean your brushes, because the soap cleans and then the oil moisturizes- i saw it on michelle pham's youtuve channel

I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to comment. I think baby shampoo is a good idea. I use Anti-Bacterial hand wash. Why? Because it is right next to my kitchen sink when I go to clean my brushes. LOL. When I started wearing makeup as a teenager, I used Dove soap. That worked great, too.
