I just hit on something that maybe has been done already but I love it! I was painting a dresser yesterday and the weather has warmed up quickly so that when I laid my paintbrush down to move the furniture around it began to dry out. I finished painting but had these little beads of dry paint in my brush. When I soaked it in warm water and soap it wouldn't come all out. Stuck in the bristles. So I Started rummaging through my drawers to see how I could remove these little dried balls of paint. I saw my old flea comb and grabbed it and WOW, did it ever work GREAT! My paint brush is so clean and free of paint! All I had to do to clean the comb was take a towel with a little rubbing alcohol and wipe it and it came clean easily! Just didfferent but I am keeping that old comb!!

Thats a great idea! My mom always soaks hers in a mixture of hair conditioner and water after she cleans them to keep the bristles in good shape.
