Baby oil to clean brushes
Baby oil is a perfect thinner for cleaning brushes without the odor. Just replace baby oil for whatever you have been using. After cleaning the brushes wipe with a paper towel.
There is no need to wash the brushes in any brush cleaner. I dip my brushes in baby oil and then knock off the excess in the beater bucket. Brushes will stay like new. The cheap baby oil works as good as the more expensive.
