After using a brush, clean it thoroughly and store it. A brush properly cared
for will last many years. Throw away crusted and curled brushes or reuse
them as disposable paste brushes.
To clean a brush, follow this table:
Remove as much color as possible:
use water for water-based paints and
use thinner or mineral spirits for oil-based paints.
Wet brush in lukewarm water.
Lather palm of hand with mild face soap.
Stroke brush back and forth in hand.
Rinse thoroughly in clean water.
Shake excess water from bristles.
Shape bristles gently into original shape.
Store brushes with bristles up.
