Don’t throw away your old paint brush. 3 tips keep paintbrushes working

An old paint brush has a lot more uses than just slathering on paint. I use them all the time on remodeling and renovation projects. Here are just a few.

For more than just a little use, it’s best to do most of this stuff with an old paintbrush, but from time to time, a little alternative use isn’t going to kill a well-maintained tool—yes, you should take care of a paint brush so it lasts.

For dust that’s settled on window sills and in every nook and cranny of a project site, vacuums can sometimes leave a fine film behind that gets into the brush and mucks up the paint. Plus, you have to clean it up eventually anyway. I find it best sometimes to go old school and let the bristles do the business.

And sometimes, there’s just not enough for a vac to get a hold of—not enough surface area for it to suck against. Cobwebs are a good example. Add with a long handle on a paintbrush and you’ve got a great cobweb killer and nook and cranny getter-outer.

And don’t forget kids! Forget teenie-tiny little brushes. Give kids some vats of water color and let the fun begin!
