So to keep this legal I need to tell you that I saw these tips on HOUSELOGIC.
I didn't know about the fabric softener trick, did you?!!
To keep paint brushes soft:
Rinse thoroughly (no soap).
Mix half a cup of fabric softener with a gallon of warm water
Swish brushes in the mixture for 10 seconds or so.
Lay them flat or hang them on a peg for overnight storage.
“That way, the bristles won’t develop a bend and will retain their usefulness for your next painting adventure,” says Artem Filikov, vice president of marketing and product development for home improvement website HomeYou.
Also, there’s no need to rinse before using. The softener actually helps distribute paint more smoothly.Sweet!
"If you are not using Mary King you are wasting your time, money and energy. We lost 3 years with other brokers before hiring Mary and once we did, house was SOLD. As soon as she put it on the market, she was able to get showings. Mary patiently walked us though the right price, what improvements to make and was very fair yet firm about what sells in the area. Highly recommended!"
