Roller brush cleaning: After using water based paints, wash the paint on the roller with water and rinse the brush with soapy water. Then, keep it by hanging in a position so that its cylinder is downward. If a synthetic based paint was used, remove the paint on the roller brush removed by skimming far as possible and rinse the brush with soapy water after cleaning with synthetic thinner. Then, hang it in a position so that its cylinder is downward. Before reusing, the roller brush should be moistened with the thinner of the paint to be used.
Brush should be bent with hands and its dust should be removed in order to dust off the new brush and shed the weak bristles. The new brush should be used at primer work firstly to make it prepare for paint work. The brush should be submerged into the paint about a half length of the bristles, then slab off the excess on the side of the paint container.
When you break off, the brush should be put in the paint vertically, it should be left horizontally on the paint box. The brush should not be used to dust off the surface to be painted or mix the paint to be used.
Brush cleaning: The brush should be cleaned with the thinner used with the paint (water, synthetic thinner). Brush bristles cleaned with water should be kept by hanging in a position so that they face downwards and they should be wetted with water before reusing. When reusing the brush cleaned with thinner, you may submerge it to the thinner and spin between your palms to remove the thinner. (If the thinner on the brush is not removed, it may over-thin the paint and cause some unwanted problems) If the used brush will be reused in a short time (2-3 days), its bristles are covered with a bag and the bag is tied tightly; so that the drying of the bristles may be prevented.
