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
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!
My name is Cortney, and welcome to the Tired Psychology Webpage! For those who’ve decided:
• Sleep is not for me
• Coffee is my preferred reinforcer
• Everyone has the potential to be a science experiment
• And you’re still trying to climb Maslow’s hierarchy of needs,
Welcome, fellow Psychology majors and enthusiasts!
I am currently working as a Behavioral Interventionist and a Clinical Assistant while obtaining my master’s in clinical psychology. I have a passion for neuroscience, the behavioral aspect of psychology, and research. I recently created this blog/webpage to occupy what little sanity I had left to organize my thoughts and hold my goals accountable. With that said, I hope to launch future research shorty and begin publishing the results here.
