Home Made Brush Drier

Pin It now!

As I was reading my copy of Bobby Brown's Beauty, it reminded me of how NOT to dry my brushes (I will lay them on a towel, according to BB, a Huge NO NO). I did not want to spend any money considering I am not employed. My inspiration came seeing how people dry their herbs kinds like having a cloth liner. So, I came up with the idea of using a used yogurt container OR even a butter container. The cool thing is that I did not spend any money on it, I just invested about 30 min or so. Here is what you will need.

1. either a yogurt or Butter container, fully washed and dried
2. A box cutter
3. A marker

Now, what I've done is draw rectangles around the container. Almost like making mini windows. With this you MUST be careful. I used a piece of scrap wood on my lap when I was cutting the little windows. With the lid, it was a bit easier. Granted the first few tries I bombed it, but then I figured out just to mark a "x"  with the marker as opposed to just cutting out little holes like I did. I used my brush handle as a guide how Big or Small the X would be. Although you may not be able to see it. on This lid, I am able to put thru 13 brushes. NOW, I do not have many brushes to begin with. BUT I would suggest for the bigger brushes use a butter container and reserve the "yogurt" container for smaller brushes. Just a suggestion! ;)

I think this is a great idea and it was worked for me. Give it a shot, it won't cost you anything but time. I wish you luck and let me know your thoughts on this.
As always becareful and if you are under 18 have a parent with you to help out!
