I LOVE this stuff! It’s a little heavy, so I spray a LITTLE onto a cloth or paper towel first - then rinse with water, and wipe my brushes clean, repeat if necessary. It actually moisturizes your brushes which helps make the bristles last longer, and a little goes a LONG way. Try to avoid getting it where the metal part of the brush attaches to the handle because over time it can wear away the glue that binds the brush together. I highly recommend.
