  1. I am a germaphobe so I am pretty meticulous about cleaning my stash every other job or so. When I worked in retail, those were some of the strictest sanitization standards in the industry. I still knew of ways to keep things tidy beyond what was required of me there. So big-time cleaning is my thing. I have brushes enough to do 8 people without having to sanitize, then those get shampooed EVERY time used. OK, I’ll stop now. :-)

    I generally keep everything as clean as I can: no major problem then. I’d say I re-order everything every week. My collection isn’t huge, really. Just a small vanity and a box with all my pigments and falsies. I’m an addict of the necessary so it’s not so long. As for my brushes, they’re cleaned up right after having been used.

    I’m not sure I understand the question. Do you mean how often do we clean out our stash or how often we actually clean our makeup products?

    I’m assuming this questions means how often I clean “out” my stash. Which is about every couple months. I’ve began to only purchase high end items, I figure the more money I spend on them, the more likely I am to use them before I go out and buy more. : )

    Almost everyday actually…I have major OCD and everything has to be orderly and clean.

    Every month or two. I get rid of old things, specifically mascaras. My stash is SUPER organized to begin with though…. but whatever, I go through everything I own every few months :)
