This brush cleaner recipe is used for in-between deep cleaning of brushes. Use this spray method after you are done using your brushes, for a quick cleaning to get them ready for the following day.

1/2-tablespoon leave in spray conditioner (optional)
Mix ingredients in a spray bottle. To use, just spray on your brush and wipe back and forth on a face cloth or paper towel, spray again and do the same process until the brush is clean. The brush will dry quickly and will be ready for next use.
