Kristen Hurlock says:

The best way to clean your brush if you’re on a budget is to mix shampoo, olive oil, and a tiny bit of anti bacterial hand soap in a bowl and use a rubber oven mitt. Dip your brush into the bowl and run it under the cool water and then swirl it over the oven mitt. And don’t put too much olive oil like they did, it can harm the brush

Robin Emrick says:

You are another victim of marketing. Every other brush cleaning video I’ve watched specifies the use of antimicrobial soaps or detergents. Guess what? The concentrations of antimicrobial ingredients in commercial products are too low to destroy bacteria or viruses. By the time they have any affect, it is only to slow bacterial growth, you know, while they’re being rinsed down your drain. BTW, tap water isn’t sterile either, nor is it required by law. Your goal is simply to remove the make-up filth that is a breeding ground for bugs, and then to dry your brushes thoroughly to discourage microbial proliferation.

Marketing wants us think that we should do our part in a War on Bacteria, killing them wherever and however we can!! Don’t be fooled. Stop using antimicrobial products unless instructed by a doctor (not an advertiser) for a specific health concern. What doesn’t kill bacteria does indeed make them stronger. Bacterial resistance is a real and growing concern. In summary: cleaning brushes with detergents to remove soils: GOOD, but choosing products for their antimicrobial ingredients for non-medical purposes: BAD.
