Cleaning paint brushes may seem like a daunting task, but fear not, I’m here to make it easy and hassle-free! The first step is to remove as much excess paint from the brush as possible. Simply wipe the brush against the edge of your paint can or use a rag to gently squeeze out the paint. Next, fill a container with warm water and add a few drops of dish soap. Swirl the brush around in the soapy water, ensuring that the bristles are fully immersed. After a few minutes, rinse the brush under running water to remove the soap and any remaining paint. If the brush is still not completely clean, you can repeat this process. Now comes the crucial step of reshaping the bristles. Gently squeeze the bristles between your fingers, starting from the base and working your way up to the tip. Finally, lay the brushes flat or hang them upside down to dry. And there you have it! With just a few simple steps, you can keep your paint brushes in tip-top shape and ready for your next artistic adventure. Happy painting!
