Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Try 'em - you'll LOVE 'em! These foam brushes are the greatest! From using latex, stains and (oil-based) polyurethanes . . . they are great! Never in the years I have used them have I ever had one fall apart. However, if you’re applying varathane, polyurethanes or varnish, you need to keep a modicum of product on the brush for a good ‘flow’—otherwise—the brush will begin to stick and in the process of ‘dragging’ the brush—the ‘stick’ the foam is adhered to will begin to poke through the foam. Also (like paint brushes) if you’re not quite through with your project but need to quit for a while; laying the brush on a piece of foil (including only about an inch or two of the handle) and tightly rolling it several times and then folding over the top edge a couple of times and then (carefully) twisting and pressing the foil around the bottom of the brush and the extended handle—the brush will remain usable for (about) up to two or three days. Note: One day I couldn’t find my basting brush and had a chicken on the rotisserie so I used one of the smaller brushes for the job–worked great. ;) July 2, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Worked okay Worked okay for what I needed it for. Did fall apart once I once almost through varnishing the bench. February 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great In the beginning, I tried saving one and reused it every day. Bad idea because this thing will fall apart with use. But guess's a disposable brush. Use it per job and discard. I'll keep buying these over and over July 24, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Brushes for the Money For touching up small areas and cutting in, these brushes are a great value. The small ones are also good for decorative work. May 8, 2012
