I have recently painted using Hammerite metal paint. When I tried to clean the brush afterwards using White Spirit, I noticed it didn't work. Hammerite sells a specialized cleaning product, but I'd like to use a product that is useful in other situations too. Is there anyone who knows what kind of cleaning product might help?
The consensus of opinion on the Ultimate Handyman forum seems to be to use an old brush and throw it away after use.
A couple of alternatives are suggested:
So presumably the Hammerite product is cellulose thinners based.
Which is something I do overnight (or a couple of days at most) when using gloss paint. It does keep the bristles soft for a while so saves on white spirit and having to find a clean brush for the next coat.
