A few years ago, Beauty Blenders came crashing onto the beauty scene and revolutionised the way we apply we apply makeup.

Where had those little egg-shaped sponges been all our lives?

Makeup lovers the world over swear by the simple  tool, but one issues has arisen time and time again – why are they so damn hard to clean?

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.

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. 

Honestly, we're just mad we didn't think of this before.
