Paint Brush Care
Always clean your paint brushes immediately after use, and before the paint has a chance to harden.

If your paint brush does not clean thoroughly first time, clean it again using paint thinner and rewash in a solution of detergent and warm water.

If you are using oil-based paints, always clean your paint brush with white spirits and then wash thoroughly in a solution of detergent and warm water.

If you require your paint brushes to be stored for long periods, return to sleeve supplied with brush or wrap in foil, always with the bristles smooth and flat.

You may also suspend your paint brushes from a nail or hook so that the paint brush is not resting on its bristles.

Never allow your paint brush to stand on end in either paint or water. This practice may also damage either the filament or the epoxy setting and cause the brush ferrule to rust.
