Adding a fresh coat of paint to your home is an instant facelift. Maybe you're thinking about updating your kitchen, touching up your shutters, or painting an accent wall in your child's bedroom. If you pulled out your brushes and paint to find that last year's cleanup wasn't so great, you'll want to stick around for this clever tip from Fixer Upper star and Texas native Joanna Gaines. Joanna and her husband Chip, based out of Waco, are known for their home renovations, complete re-hauls, and lots of interior design – so painting is her specialty. Having gunky, paint-filled brushes can keep you from getting your home DIY project done the way you'd like it. If you've got some dirty brushes to clean, Joanna Gaines has teamed up with KILZ to show you the best way to bring your tools back to life. The best part? You can use ingredients that you've likely already got hanging around the kitchen.
[MUSIC] Have you ever wondered how to get your gunky brushes cleaned up? Well this is an easy tip, use hot vinegar. Pour it in, you let the brushes soak for about 20 or 30 minutes. After you've let them soak, I use this tool. It's like a brush comb, you can get it at any hardware store. What you do is you brush the gunk out. Basically comb the brush. You get all the thick spots out. And once you've cleaned that out, you let it soak in soapy water. You get the vinegar out. Pat it down. Run it through some warm water. Get the soap out. There you go. Your brush is good as new. [MUSIC]
