if my painter was dumping that dirty water into my lawn id tell him not to
Obviously you do not know what you are talking about. There is nothing in
the dirty water that is environmentally unsafe nor will it harm any plants
or grass. I have been doing the same for 15 years. So why wouldn’t you have
me come back? You probably should never wash you car either cause the dirty
water just ends up in the nearby stream.
Yes I do clean them in sinks, in the winter, but I make sure the sink is
cleaner then when I began using it.
I still using high quality brushes with oil based products. It takes about
a quart to clean it. But I reuse the thinner. We just keep it in a sludge
that looks pretty good. but we clean ours in a sink in our house. same
idea. but just wondering why he is COVERED in paint? they say your work
probably looks like that as well !!!!
Well I paint so I have paint on me. Dont have paint on you and you probably
Why? It’s water-based paint. Tints is inorganic compounds like titanium
dioxide, just minerals. He’s actually watering the lawn. Of course, NEVER
do this with oil-based paints. Dispose of them properly.
Idahopainters really like your videos keep it up mate I’m a painter in
Thanks for watching & don’t forget to “like” us and “share” us.
Hi there, and thanks so much for your video! I just wanted to ask a
question (pardon my ignorance.) My question is, I can’t help to think that
smashing the bristles into the bucket like that wouldn’t be good for them
no? Again, I have no idea it just looks like it. Talk to me – and thank
It is not a problem with our brushes. Now we are not trying to crush them
through the bucket either. Just trying to work the paint out of the
Ferrell. Thanks for watching our videos. Don’t forget to “like” us and
“share” us. It goes a long way to keeping our videos coming.
Water based paint goes right into the ground. I painted houses with my dad
for over 20 yrs and sometimes we brought the stuff home to clean in the
same spot in the backyard. The grass grew like weed and was the healthiest
in that spot!
woah chris, someone need a better belt hahaha, i do same process, but i
don’t hit the brush to the bottom of the bucket, may take a bit longer i
think, and i spin it inside the bucket with my hands to dry them, i use a
comb also, good video, great tips
Great video on how to clean a brush! I do have a question for you Chris
when would you do this? Do you clean them after you get back to your shop
at the end of the day? I am sure you would not do it at the customers house
and get paint water all over there lawn or flower bed right? Only reason I
ask I have seen guys clean up at the the customers house and leave a mess.
Thanks Chris for so many great videos I I have learned a ton from them
Thanks for the great video! I have watched several video and you explain
what extension, tools etc can you tell me what water hose you have found at
home depot to be good for contractor use thank you.
would you use the same cleaning method for turpentine based pain? Would
water be enough to clean them up?
After I brush the brush out I was trained to put the hose on the end/inside
of the brush and form an air tight circle with my hand. The pressure works
the paint out of the ferrell(sp). Your method sure does look faster though.
you gotta fold all the hairs back with water all in it and ferrel. and
watch for paint to run down the shuck aka metal whatever. I personally
clean my brush same method but you a stone to clean dry paint. works better
then wire doesn’t damage hairs. also I repeat the folding of the hairs
in-between rinses until it runs clear as drinking water. I also paint with
a man’s brush.
