revive paintbrushes: If you have old, hard paintbrushes, don’t throw them away! There is a quick and easy way to revive them. All you will need is vinegar and soapy water. First, soak nylon paint brushes in hot vinegar for up to 30 minutes. After soaking, wash them with hot, soapy water. They will be as good as new, and the process is a lot cheaper than buying new paintbrushes.

Wash your load of towels on the hot cycle and add 1 cup of vinegar… just hot water and the vinegar, nothing else. Let the washer do it’s job. Then, if you still smell a little bit, rewash with just hot water and 1/2 cup of baking soda. Again, no detergent, just baking soda and hot water. Voila!

Soak your used brushes in hot vinegar for 30 minutes to remove paint and soften the bristles.
