Makeup brushes are a popular tool for applying makeup to the face, but they can also be used for a variety of other tasks. The bristles on a makeup brush are often soft and gentle, making them perfect for cleaning delicate surfaces like your sewing machine. Plus, makeup brushes are available at a wide range of price points, so you can find one that fits your budget.


Most stores often have them for around $2 each. I got an ELF eye brush for $2 at Big Lots. But Dollar Tree, Dollar General and Walmart also have them for around the same price too.

To use a makeup brush as a sewing machine cleaning brush, follow these simple steps:

  1. Choose a brush with soft, synthetic bristles. Avoid natural hair brushes, as these can shed and leave debris behind.
  2. Remove the needle and presser foot from your sewing machine to access the internal components.
  3. Gently brush the dust and debris from the machine using the makeup brush. Pay special attention to areas around the feed dogs, bobbin case, and tension discs, as these areas are prone to buildup.
  4. Reattach the needle and presser foot and test the machine to ensure it is functioning correctly.

Using a makeup brush as a sewing machine cleaning brush is a simple and affordable solution for keeping your machine in top condition. Plus, it’s a great way to repurpose a tool you may already have in your makeup collection. So, next time you’re cleaning your sewing machine, grab a cheap makeup brush and get to work!
