So here's an interesting tip for all of the DIY enthusiasts out there who want to keep their paintbrushes in tip-top condition.

1. In the middle of a painting project and want to keep your brushes fresh overnight? In this case, there’s no need to give them a thorough clean. Simply wrap the head of your paintbrushes and roller in cling film or secure in an airtight plastic bag. Seal around the handle with masking tape and store in a dry place for up to two days.


2. Once you’ve finished painting, it’s now time to give your brushes and rollers a proper clean. First, scrape off as much paint as you can.


3. If you’ve been using water-based paint, simply soak your brush or roller in warm water for about 2 hours. Dry with a clean cloth and store in a dry place for future use.


4. Using solvent-based paints? Pour a small amount of solvent-based cleaner (this can be found at your local hardware store) into a small jar or container and work the brush against the sides to get the cleaner into the base of the bristles. Soak for about 2 hours, dry with a clean cloth and store in a dry place for future use.


5. You shouldn’t pour solvents down the sink, so after you’ve finished cleaning your brushes, pop a lid on your jar or container and leave for 24 hours. Once the paint has sunk to the bottom, you can tip the remaining solvent cleaner into the bottle for future use. Leave the paint to fully dry in the jar before disposing in the bin.

Thank you for this information. We regularly schedule paint jobs. We can save a lot from the cost of new paint brushes if only our group mates know how to properly handle them. I am going to print this and hand it to everyone. I will not just send them the link because I don't think they will find time to read everything on screen.

I've been also struggling about my paintbrushes. Good thing I've found your blog about this. Thank you for the tips. This will probably be helpful for me since we are now doing endless painting activities. I will also recommend this to my friends. I have one friend who is really into painting. He would absolutely love this for sure.

I do not paint much, but I have some brushes lying around because I used them for some art project before. I thought using some water and soap was enough to clean brushes, but I guess I was wrong. I actually didn’t even wipe my brushes dry. I just let them air dry. Will I ruin my brushes by doing so? I actually never soaked my brushes as well as I thought it would make the hairs on the brush fall off. Thank you for the article I learned a lot. I was literally clueless about proper paint brush cleaning until this.

Removing paint from brush is a difficult job. But you makes that simple. Thank you.

We all know that painting requires a lot of paintbrush because you need to be careful not to destroy your work. The paintbrush sometimes cannon be repeated because of the stains remaining or colors that are mixed to it will make the same for the next painting session. The tips are really helpful, especially for me a painter, I spend so much money buying and buying paint brush. I would love to do the tips given by the author. I can now save money while enjoying to paint my future artworks.

Alas for most of us those good old days have gone and it is up to us as the inhabitants of our houses to keep out homes free of dirt and allergens. Good old-fashioned elbow grease and hot water are no longer left to the cleaning lady.

According to study, more work load is a reason to reduce productivity. Somehow it makes sense because burden of work leads us to flabbergasted.
