Brits may have picked up a few new hobbies over the last lockdown. Some favourites may include types of exercise such as running or completing a long-postponed home project. The issue with painting, however, is that people have to maintain their tools.
How to clean paintbrushes with white spirit
Any home projects, especially longer ones, can take time and energy.
They may leave people tired and unwilling to clean their brushes after a day of painting, meaning it starts to dry on.
If people find their brushes caked with paint, they will need something abrasive to clean it off, namely white spirit.

Once worked in, cleaners should leave the brushes to soak for up to two hours until clean.
Then, remove and rinse the brushes under a tap before drying them off with a cloth.
The process should have removed the paint, and any remaining particles will sink to the bottom of the jar.
At this point, people can transfer the remaining white spirit to a new container and bin the particles once dry.
