How To Clean Paint Brushes Using Fabric Softener

.

We don't have to tell you that the quickest way to give your home a whole different look is through paint. The only down side is how quickly the paint will dry...on your brushes. Having a paint brush with dried on paint renders the tool useless. Luckily, we've got a tip on how to clean bristles that have been dipped in latex paint.

After painting, remove excess paint off the paint brush by using a scraping tool. Then, mix a gallon of warm water and half a cup of liquid fabric softener into a bucket. Next, dip the paint brush into the mixture and move it around in the liquid for ten seconds. Finally, dry the paint brush by shaking or spinning it vigorously.
