If you intend to take a longer break, you can put the brushes and rollers in a vacuum sealer. Remove all the air and place the bag inside the freezer. Your brushes are safe now.

  1. Cleaning After a Project

It is always advised people should clean their brushes and rollers soon after the work is done. Cleaning can be easy and simple if the brushes were treated with care. For this, remove all the excess paint from the brushes immediately. Moreover, don’t pour down the water used to clean brushes in the drain. It will be more dangerous.

  1. Maintaining After Cleaning

Now comes the most important thing and that is to preserve the brushes and rollers after you have cleaned them. For this, the experts advise to first set the bristles of the brushes. If the bristles of your brush are not straight, dip them into warm water and take out after a few minutes. Now you should comb the bristles so that they are straight before you preserve them. You can then keep them in a vacuum sealer bag.

For the rollers, it is suggested they should be trimmed. The dried part of the rollers can be trimmed so that the bristles remain even and don’t affect the texture when you take them out for use.

  • Always store the brushes and rollers in the original covers and vacuum sealers. If you have lost one, you should create one of a similar size.
