Re: [BKARTS] a thank you



The way I get PVA, deeply embedded, out of my brushes is:

1) Soak the brush for two days in EtOH, then twirl dry. (I do this over a lined trash bin.)
2) Soak for another two days, then twirl dry.
3) Soak in detergent solution for two days, then rinse.


Not as much trouble as it sounds, since one can treat several brushes at once.

Subject: [BKARTS] a thank you

I will spare you the long, disastrous story that led to this ; ), but I want to thank the person who suggested that cleaning up brushes that had hardened PVA on them might be softened by soaking in more PVA. I despaired this morning of ever getting it all out of my new pajamas, until I remembered the tip. : ) I plastered PVA on the dried spots, stuck them in a plastic bag with a good amount of water, and let it sit thru the day. My PJs are fine now. :)

Thanks,

Kathy
