Painting Tips | Use a brush comb to clean brushes

You’re always hearing that it’s important to buy a nice set of brushes (Purdys are a great choice!), but then once you invest in those brushes, how do you keep them looking like new? Clean them after every use, and use a brush comb to help loosen the paint from the well and ferrule.

Use a brush comb after each use to help you scrape dried bits of paint out of your brush, helping your paint brushes last longer!

We used the Project Select Brush Comb, a steal for under $5! But, feel free to browse all of our brush comb options.
