It's a universal truth: The leftover makeup on a sponge is damn hard to remove. No amount of baby shampoo or brush cleanser is enough to bring it back to its immaculate state.
Thankfully, Twitter user 2CHINZz posted a ~*genius*~ hack that restored her makeup sponge's pristine condition. As of writing, it has gained 9K retweets and 28K likes. Apparently, microwaving the egg-shaped sponge in soapy water for one minute does the trick!

Put it in a cup with water and fairy liquid then microwave for 1min! pic.twitter.com/9pIR2l5ALE
She used a specific soap brand, but we believe any liquid cleansing agent that breaks down oils will work, too.
Also, if you find your sponge changed its shape, 2CHINZz says to let it air-dry to bring back its form.
BRB, cleaning all our dirty sponges now.
