Once cooled I removed the brush from the skillet and started to work out the dried paint. I used my fingers and a toothbrush. At first, I wasn’t sure it was going to work but after a few minutes, it started to flex and bend. I rinsed the brush thoroughly with water and I kept working the paint out of the bristles. I did have to repeat the process one more time before I was happy with the results. I’m so glad I didn’t toss that brush and the best part is I was able to clean it up without harsh chemicals.
IMPORTANT!!!!! The article on Apartment Therapy noted this disclaimer: Additional Notes:
