I had been cleaning my Beauty Blender makeup sponge with anything I could get my hands on… Blender Cleanser, baby wash… But I still wasn’t totally happy with the results. So I finally took the time to google how to clean a Beauty Blender. And what did I see? Countless videos of makeup-lovers cleaning their Blenders with Zote Laundry Soap. So I thought, “Well goodness. Maybe that should be how I clean my Beauty Blender!”
I never before heard of Zote. I don’t know how, because I am kind of a clean freak, it’s only $1 at Walmart, and I am in Walmart pretty frequently. Like, what?!
Of course I was going to try it out! And it’s pink.

The package says “more whitening power.” Well, that’s kind of key, I think. That means Zote has the potential to remove some deep stains from the Beauty Blender. Zote also advertises on the package that it is safe for delicate clothes. So if I can use it on lace, I’ll use it on my face.
And it’s HUGE!!! 14.1 ounces of pink bar soap that has a clean, floral scent. At first, I was a little blown away by the massive strength of the scent, but it is kind of growing on me. If you don’t like loud scents, this one is not for you, as Zote can scent any room just by being in it.
Zote also has a minimum fatty acid content of 66%. Huh?? Well, I did a little bit of research, and it seems that fatty acids play a huge factor in the efficacy of soap. Mind blown. Can you tell I am not a chemist?

Take a look at my embarrassingly-stained Beauty Blenders. I must be using them incorrectly or something, because I haven’t had them terribly long, and they are already tearing! Well, the tearing is probably related to my own errors, but maybe the stains are stubborn because I have been using junky soap!
Here’s what my sponges look like after cleansing with Zote for about 2 minutes apiece.
Any previous stains are hardly visible now! As I was cleansing the Blenders, massive amounts of makeup went down the drain. I was astonished at the high volume of grime since I had recently cleansed with the Blender Cleanser. (Have you seen the Blender Cleanser Solid?? It’s tiny and costs over $15. No thank you! I’ll shell out the dough for the beloved sponges, but they’ve gone too far with the soap.)

I love how clean I was able to get my sponges with the Zote. Zote Laundry Soap is now the key component in the equation of how I clean my Beauty Blender. I will definitely repurchase it in the future, whenever that may be. How long do you think this 1 pound bar of soap will last me??
The only “issue” I have is that my Beauty Blenders definitely inherited the Zote scent. It doesn’t bother me, but it might bother you. (Also, this is not an issue for me, but I believe Zote uses some fatty acids from animals, so if you’re vegan, it’s not for you.) You can buy it here. I’m not sure why the price is showing as $2.33, because I am almost positive I paid $1, but still, it’s a bargain.
That’s what’s up in beauty today. What do you use to clean your beauty sponges? Have you been spending too much money on soap??
