Sterilizing your Makeup Tools

Before I went to beauty school I never disinfected by tools like hair clips, nail clips etc... Now I keep a clean container under my vanity just for disinfecting my tools on a monthly time frame. I purchase my disinfected at Sally's Beauty supply store. It's called Hydrox Hyrdrocide. It's a hospital grade disinfected that I use for my tools. The basic mixture is 2 oz. to 1 gallon. For my small container I just use a teaspoon of Hydrox. I submerge my tools into the mixture for about 15 minutes. I use tongs to remove my tools, and rinse under water. I lay all my tools out on a clean towel to dry. Then I put away. I do this every month. Something you might want to think about doing yourself. We all share grooming tools, so it's the best way to clean tools.
