Cleaning Paint Brushes

Cleaning paint brushes is a particularly messy and tedious business and, if you don\'t take it seriously, you could well ruin a paint brush in a day. Normally you would have to keep your brush wrapped up during the day while it is not being used, and when it comes time to clean the brush you would need old paint tin or containers, and enough solvent to rinse and re-rinse the brush until it\'s clean. As I wrote at the start, cleaning paint brushes is a messy job using water or oil based paints.
