Last weekend I took an impromptu visit to the city. For a while i was trying to steer clear of the shops for fear of spending money when i ought to be saving for my trip abroad later this year. I wasn’t particularly going for any purpose other than to browse/kill some time. I headed into Daiso after feeling a little nostalgic (about my trip to Japan last year – fav country to visit to date). For those of you who are unfamiliar with Daiso stores, they’re essentially a variety store based where everything costs $2.80. You can find a bunch of lifestyle and novelty items that you’ll realise you just have to have. It’s safe to say that if you love Japanese and Korean knick knacks you’ll love Daiso.
I did reasonably well, picking up some Black bean sweets and a couple of other odds and sods for around the home, however my most exciting purchase was the Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge. I’m just going to put it out there and say that this detergent is the best brush and sponge detergent ever.
The detergent is a clear liquid used to clean brushes, sponges and puffs. I’ve used many other detergents, brush cleaners and even Isopropyl alcohol before, but nothings cleans my brushes and sponges as well as the Daiso detergent. At $2.80 it’s a bargain. I haven’t experienced any damage to my brushes however I have heard that you shouldn’t use the Daiso detergent on natural bristle brushes – not sure whether or not this is true but just a forewarning. If you live anywhere near a Daiso store I strongly recommend you hop on over and pick up a bottle or two. You won’t be disappointed.
Do you swear by a brush and/or sponge cleaner? Let us all know.
