How to clean make up brushes?

After chatting to a friend about skincare and the products that I use on my face. We tend to forget the importance of regularly cleaning of our make up brushes. So when I asked a few of my friends the above question, I usually receive a response of uhmmm.... or they'll respond by saying a few months ago or I didn’t think it was needed? 
Ladies cleaning your make up brushes is a must & it doesn’t have to be a daunting 
task at all.
 There are quite a few ways that you can go about cleaning your make up brushes, from using an actual make up brush cleaning product, to baby shampoo to even your own DIY solution. The options are endless, you just need to find the method that works for you.
 1. Lay out all the brushes you would want to clean on a piece of paper towel.
      2. Wet the brushes in a bowl or jar.
3.Get the soap of your choice, my preference is a bar of Lux soap or if you have 
sensitive skin use an unscented bar of soap.
4. Swirl the wet brush on the bar of soap, until foam appears.
5. Dip brush back into the bowl and you will see the water change colour. You could also just run your brushes under a lukewarm tap, but we all about saving water so I suggest using a jar saves water.
6. Remember to squeeze excess water out of your brush by using your index finger and thumb. Repeat the above until water is clear.
7.  Then lay wet brushes on a clean paper towel against a wall. So that the excess 
drops flows down.
8.  Allow it to dry over night.
9. In the morning you would have fresh, clean brushes to use with a lovely scent.
If you have an another method of cleaning your make up brushes, please do share! Would love to know what you are doing?
