Cleaning and Traveling with Paintbrushes (Without Damage)

Paintbrush Care by Sondra Hanson, Missoula, MT

I have purchased many commercial paint brush cleaners and have found a product that works quicker & better for me than any of the ones made specifically for brush cleaning. It's 409 Cleaner. It can be found in the cleaning and laundry supply section of any grocery store. I spray it on my brushes and work it through as any other cleaner . Then rinse well and stroke your brush over a bar of Ivory soap to hold its shape. (Be sure to rinse your brush before using to remove the Ivory soap.) When traveling with your paint brushes, use a wooden dowel that's longer than any of your brushes to rubber band your brushes onto. This way you they can travel either horizontally or vertically without damaging the bristles.
