Vinegar for Cleaning Paint Brushes

Vinegar wins again. I was replacing a few floor tiles. I uses a floor patch that is sort like a cement. I used a old paint brush to feather the edges. The floor patch dried on the brush and parts became hard. I did not want to throw my $1.00 brush away. I am a bit thrifty. It has many other uses to come. I soaked in vinegar water for a day and the brush cleaned up, no more dried floor patch. I will get a few more years out of my paint brush.

Paintbrushes are so expensive. I had no idea how to save them. Thanks for letting me know. You are great.
