The struggle is real when it comes to cleaning those makeup brushes once a week. If we’re being honest, it’s all too easy to skip a week or two. But don’t forget: dirty brushes harbor dirt and bacteria that can cause breakouts and irritation!

That said, there are silicone brush cleansing matts on the market that make getting the job done so much easier. While they’re convenient, they can cost upwards of $30 bucks or more. But you can actually DIY your very own cleaning board…with a clipboard!

This project will set you back only a few bucks (clipboard and hot glue, included!). The plastic clipboard is a great dupe because it’s waterproof, and the textured surface helps break up dirt and grime just as well as those fancy designer mats.

Would you make this at home? Tell us in the comments section below!

Yeah, you could have this gross huge thing in your house… or buy a silicone oven mitt / trivet from the dollar store. Or a brush egg on ebay for 75 cents.
