How to Save Your Brushes

Over time, paintbrushes succumb to fraying due to paint seeping into the heel of the brush. Reshaping your brushes is an easy process that takes minimal supplies and can save you a lot of money. So stop discarding your mangled brushes and get to cleaning!

You will need the following:

  • A Soap Bar
  • Boiling Water in a Cup or Bowl
  • Old Paintbrushes

Start by filling a cup or heat-safe cup with hot/boiling water. Wet your brush, making sure to only soak the bristles.

Next, begin reshaping your brush by firmly applying pressure while pulling the brush towards you. Make sure to get enough soap between the bristles and the heel. Keep stroking until the brush resembles its original shape.

Set your brushes aside and allow them to soak for 3-4 hours. After, rinse in hot water, and VOILA! Your brushes will look like new!
