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.
