Directions for use

Wear chemical-resistant gloves and chemical splash goggles. Shake well and open can slowly to relieve pressure.

1. Suspend brush in a metal can and fill with Brush Cleaner until bristles are covered up to the metal ferrule. Soak brush for several hours, or overnight, until the paint is softened. Occasionally agitate brush to speed the softening process and keep the container covered with aluminum foil to retard

2. Loosen residue with a brush comb or metal fork, starting at the ferrule. Agitate in fresh cleaner to loosen remaining residue and shake out excess cleaner. Wash brush thoroughly with warm soapy water, shake out excess water, and hang brush to dry.


For brushes and rollers with wet paint or coatings, agitate in Brush Cleaner immediately. Follow directions in #2 above.
