Q
A
Remove the pad from the handle ... water based paints soak the pad in a bucket of warm water for about 20 minutes ... rinse out dirty water under a warm tap and leave to dry naturally. Oil based paint soak in approx 10 mm of mineral turpentine for 10 minutes ... then remove dirty turps and repeat ... then make sure you wash the dirty turps out thoroughly in warm soapy water and leave to dry naturally. Methylated spirits may also be used in the same method if required.

Tip
. If you want to use the pad straight away make sure you squeeze out any excess water in an old rag ... damp is fine but you can't use the pad wringing wet.
