How to Clean and Store Paintbrushes for Your Home
By: Joe Truini
If you buy quality paintbrushes and store them properly, they will last a long time. Here’s how to clean and store the paintbrushes in your home:
- Clean with warm soapy water after each use and allow to dry.
- Follow this by running a brush comb through the bristles to remove any dried paint chips.
- Wrap the brush in brown craft paper, fold the end over and secure it with a rubber band to the metal ferrule on the brush.
- Or store the brush in the cardboard sleeve that came with it.
