How does everyone care for their brushes? i generally just use water at the jobsite, usually the houses are vacant and we clean them anyway. what about at someone elses house? is it ok to wrap the brush in plastic and clean at home? i also use the little wooster wire/nail brush to comb the bristles out and use the brass wires to scrape off dried paint. how about oil? we use kerosene mostly. we usually are just using yachtsman's and the buy lots of them, but i want to learn how to make my oil brush last, not just jam in to kerosene, cant be good for it. and how do you dispose of your used brush cleaner. i read a book buy that faux finish guy a while back and he suggested swishing the brush around in denatured alcohol and then mineral spirits and the a mixture of both. sounds alright to me but i rarely paint in oil and i use the company yachtsman's when i do, its usually just cutting in poly though.
