Well ladies, the struggle is finally over.
One Twitter user has come up with the ultimate solution to this common problem, and we are amazed at how simple it actually is.
The answer has been sitting on our kitchen sinks the entire time.
This is honestly the best way to get all make up off a beauty blender.
Put it in a cup with water and fairy liquid then microwave for 1min! pic.twitter.com/9pIR2l5ALE

Simply soak the sponge in a mixture of Fairy Liquid and water, pop it in the microwave for one minute and voila – good as new.
Since Tuesday, the tweet has has been liked over 30,000 times, proving how revolutionary this hack really is.
But don't just take our word for it. The results have been amazing.
If you guys haven't tried microwaving your beauty blender to clean it I would HIGHLY recommend !!! (W/ hot water and washing up liquid)
