Quick Tip: Washing Instructions

Only use cold water when cleaning your brushes. This includes using cold water in your cleaning cup or tub and on those occasions when you take a brush to the sink. Hot water will weaken the glue that holds those hairs together and shorten the life of your brush.

If you have really stubborn paint stuck in the bristles use a bit of dish washing soap, or brush cleaning soap, and cold water to clean things up.

Here I've been using hot water because it loosens the paint quicker. I didn't know it also loosened the glue. Thanks for sharing!
