I opted not to post yesterday to give y'all a break but I'm back in the saddle today!
So get ready....I have some great information for you.
I have a bit of a ummmm.......paint brush
obsession, fetish, sickness.....love affair.
(Hi. My name is Rhonda and I am a Paint Brush Addict.....I need help.)
My treasured wax brush......we love each other...
Purdy and I go back a long way.....
A good stencil brush is invaluable. They make alot of garbage ones.
And let me just tell you that the Zibra brushes are highly overrated.
They do not get my vote.....save your money.
I am partial to the Purdy Cub XL and the Purdy 1" angle.
They are always my "go to" brushes.
Ok, so you get my jist. I take my paint brushes seriously......and I spend alot of money on them.....
My opinion is that if you are going to purchase a quality paint (ie. CHALKPAINT) you should also purchase a quality brush.
Again, only my opinion.
I have invested in many cleaning products as well.....
If you are going to buy quality brushes you want to take care of them so they last a long time, right?
Major YUCK but works well for oil based products....
Does the job but pretty pricey......
Not bad in a pinch for latex or water based products....
A good choice if you don't feel like pulling out the good ol' paint thinner to clean up an oil based product.
I have used all of these and probably a few more but the product that I am about to show you knocks these all out of the game and I cannot imagine ever using anything else, atleast at this point.
Are you ready for it?
(Heavenly choir singing in the back ground......)
I introduce to you my new best friend......
I am not even kidding you. This stuff R.O.C.K.S!!!!
I use it to clean all types of paint products.....latex, oil, water based paint, my beloved CHALK PAINT, stencil paint, glaze....you name it.
And, best part, no effort! I simply (pun intended.....sometimes I tickle myself...)
add a few squirts of this stuff to a cup of tap water and let it sit. After awhile (or overnight on occasion) I swish it around, rinse the brush under running tap water and BAM.....
Fantastic product! It is concentrated so it takes very little....comes in a gallon and costs something like 10 bucks for a gallon (A GALLON) of this stuff! AH-MAZING!
Gotta grab some....gotta try it.....let me know what you think!
And, Simple Green Company....if you are reading please feel free to contact me to be your new spokesperson.....Billy Mays' was my brother....kidding, just kidding.....
That's all I have for ya today.....but it was worth a whole post. Trust me.
I'm thinking about a weekly "Handy Tips.....Wish I Had Known That!" Link Party.
What do ya say?
