    This tip was taught to me by a professional polisher some 30 years ago.

    Hi James,

    I take it you mean Polyclens the brush cleaner? Would white sprits be just as effective?

    Thanks

    Yes Polyclens brush cleaner is what our polishers used.
    The Polyclens website states this; Polycell Brush Cleaner is the easiest way to get brushes really clean with no mess or paint residue. It contains powerful detergents to break down the paint so it cleans better than white spirit.

    Thanks! I imagine you can use the same solution until it is saturated instead of changing it after each clean?

    Yes, I used my Polyclens in a large screw top jam jar for months.

    I never had any problems using it Theresa with stones or even enamels, I always used it cold, hanging items in the jam jar with wires on a stick that sat across the top of the jar so that the items hang in the liquid without touching the sides or base of the jar.
