How To Clean a Paintbrush


In this video, Randy gives a few tips on how to clean a paint brush. If you are using a water base paint or latex paint, that is the easiest to clean. You simply only have to use warm water and a mild dish soap. Remember to put the brush back in it’s sleeve or leave it hang with the bristles down to ensure they stay straight. If you are using an enamel or oil base paint, you’ll need to invest in some paint thinner as this is the best way to clean that paint brush. One key point here is if you are only taking a break from painting with the same color, you can put it in a zip lock bag for up to 12 hours to keep it wet and not dried out.

My name is Julia Ritzenthaler, Founder and President of Unique Vanities, started in 2005. I started this business as an extension of our residential remodeling business, which focused on the design and build of custom cabinetry and architectural trim. I also worked as a financial advisor for 10 years at Ameriprise Financial, helping clients make sound money decisions, including budgeting for home improvement expenses. This expertise led me to start Unique Vanities, which offers a handpicked selection of high quality bathroom vanities, sinks, mirrors and more. You can find me most days sitting in Starbucks, my second office, or in my car driving my daughter across Dallas to gymnastics training.
