Paint Clean Up

Don't mess around with cleaning brushes and paint tools inside your home. Take them directly outside, being careful not to drip inside the house, and clean them on your lawn with a hose. If your paint is not water based, you can still save yourself a mess by cleaning up outside or in your garage.

From what I understand, cleaning any sort of paint, even water based, in your house sink, can leave paint sediment in the drain pipes and cause problems later. My landlady swears she read this and insisits we clean brushes outside only.
