Painting Clean Up:
To clean latex paint off brushes, use soap and water immediately after painting. If the paint dries on the brushes, use special solvents to remove it. Be careful not to dispose of paint in an area where it may seep into the ground water.
For oil based paints, you will need a solvents such as mineral spirits or paint thinner to remove the paint.
You can wrap paint brushes in plastic wrap and seal them with a rubber band and hang them upside down so they maintain their shape.
Keep a quart of paint for touch ups and label with the color and brand name if not already labeled.
