My Brush is Dried Out! New Tip: Did you let your brush dry with paint all over it? First, you need to remember the rule to clean your brushes immediately after working! Second, there is a way to get your brush back in working order with something you most likely have in your home already! If you have liquid fabric softener, try soaking your paint-caked brush in it for awhile to loosen up any paint. After you have allowed it to soak and soften, simply rinse it and wash with soap and water for a nice clean brush!
