How to clean paint brushes when using oil based paint.
Before any cleaning can begin remove as much paint as possible from the paint brush.
Pour mineral spirit into a container so that it fully covers the bristles.
Use the lip and sides of the container to remove as much paint as possible as well as dipping and swirling the paint brush to work the mineral spirit through the bristles.
Repeat steps 2 and 3, changing the mineral spirit a few times until the paint brush is clean.
Decorating Tip: If you have dried paint in the brush, use a brush comb to remove it.
