Brush Cleaner for California

Klean-Strip® Brush Cleaner for California can help you maintain the performance of your painting tools and keep them looking like new. It’s great for cleaning up natural and synthetic bristle brushes, artistic brushes, roller covers, trays, and equipment after a project — removing hardened latex and oil-based paint, enamel, varnish, shellac, lacquer, and polyurethane.

   

Shake well and open can slowly to relieve pressure.

To recondition dried brushes:

  1. Suspend brush in a metal can and fill with Brush Cleaner until bristles are covered up to the metal base of the bristle. Cover the container while the brush is soaking. Soak brush for several hours, or overnight, until the paint is softened. Occasionally agitate brush to speed the softening process and keep the container covered with aluminum foil to retard evaporation.
  2. Loosen residue with a brush comb or metal fork, starting at the base of the bristles. Agitate in fresh cleaner to loosen remaining residue and shake out excess cleaner. Hang brush to dry.

To clean fresh paint:

For brushes and rollers with wet paint or coatings, agitate in Brush Cleaner immediately. Follow directions in #2 above.
