How Do I Clean Paint Brushes?

Glidden Team:

What should you use to clean paint brushes and supplies?

Product Manager and PPG Paint Specialist: 

For latex paint, clean tools with warm soapy water.  Contact your local environmental regulatory agency for guidance on disposal of unused product.  Do not pour down a drain or storm sewer.

Oil-based paint clean-up requires solvent such as paint thinner, mineral spirits, or acetone. Be sure to clean and dry brushes thoroughly at the end of each day. 

When drying your brushes, try to hang them or set them upright in a can or container.  Avoid laying your brushes flat on a surface that could impede their ability to completely dry.
