Create Your Own Paint Brush Cleaning Container
To create your own paint brush cleaning container, gather the following materials:
• Recycled container (any kind of jar with a sealable screw-top lid)
• Wire mesh strainer (like a sink strainer or vegetable strainer)
• Wire cutters
• Paint brush cleaning solvent
Gather your materials.
Clean out your recycled jar/container. Take the wire cutters and use them to cut the wire mesh screen from the strainer. Place cut mesh in bottom of container so it can retain its dome shape. You also want to make sure it fits snugly.
Fill container slightly above top of strainer with whatever cleaning solvent you use/prefer to clean paint brushes. To clean brush, wipe/brush bristles against the strainer.
