How to Clean a Paint Brush

This past weekend was jam packed with lots of stuff going on: big (overdue) house cleaning, finishing up of a drainage project (more on that tomorrow), work at the Raiders, handyman jobs, catching up on day job work and lots more. So when I was trying to motivate myself this morning to write about the drainage project Chris worked on I was too tired to type about it (lazy ass) and I realized I never published this post from ages ago when Chris gives instructions on how to properly clean a paintbrush.

Chris painted houses in college and is pretty meticulous about making sure his brushes are always cleaned properly to ensure lasting use. We always buy Purdy brushes which are a tad more expensive, but also made a lot better (they are made by hand with a sticker on it of the person who made it, pretty awesome.) Because of the quality of the brushes we always make sure to clean them really well.

Without further ado...

I swear by Purdy brushes. So good!

I second that. I have been using my purdy trim brush for 4yrs. Love it.

Purdy = amazing. I always slightly shudder when I see people using HD brand brushes.

Wish I had your utility sink - I have to wash paint brushes in the kitchen sink or the bathtub!

I LOVE having a utility sink. It's fun to see all the speckled paint in there :)

Thank you for this! You make it look easy enough that even I can't mess it up.
