We all are aware that bacteria, mold and mildew are a constant battle in our homes. How many times have you seen or heard discussions on TV regarding kitchen sponges. They trap bacteria and redistribute germs on everything they touch. It's recommended to place your kitchen sponge in the dishwasher once a week for sanitization. Well, how many of us think about our cosmetic sponge? You know, the little white triangle sponge we use to apply makeup and cosmetics? This little sponge soaks up more than you may want to know.
As a makeup artist, it is not uncommon for me to use several sponges in one makeup session. I do throw them away as I use them but didn't really think much about it when it came to my own makeup. Boy were my eyes opened when I was introduced to the Beauty Blender.
