Cleaning brushes and wondering how you can best do that? Cleaning a paintbrush or roller helps to maintain its quality. And just as important is to keep the brushes and rollers in the right way, so that you can paint with them later.
How to clean the brushes depends on the type of paint you work with. With a number of useful tips you ensure that your brushes are immediately ready for use again the next time.
Clean Brushes And Paint Rollers
Are you done with paints? Then scrape off as much paint as possible from the brushes and rollers. You can then clean them, based on the type of paint you are painting with:
brushes with water- based paint Place the brushes in a container with warm water and let them soak well for a few hours. Dry the brushes with a clean cloth and then store them in a dry place.
brushes with turpentine-based paint Pour a small amount of turpentine into a clean jar or can and press the brushes against the sides. The turpentine thus comes to the bottom of the hair, to work well on it. Soak the brushes for two hours, dry them with a clean cloth and store them in a dry place.
That way you can clean the paint brushes, so that you can use them again without problems next time. It is the easiest way to clean both brushes and paint rollers, so that you can keep them beautiful for a long time.
Do you want to save the brushes so that you can continue using them the next day? If you immediately start painting again the next day, it is not necessary to first thoroughly clean them. Put the hairs of the brush in cover foil or put them in an airtight plastic bag. You can cover the part around the handle with tape, so that no air can get in. You can store the paint brushes or rollers in this way for a maximum of 2 days, after which you can continue painting with them.
