Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gretta Ryobi paint brush cleaner
I do painting for other people and have many brushes to clean. I am very excited about this product. It cleans the brushes throughly. You may need to change the water if there is a lot of paint still in the brush at time of cleaning. Cleans very well and not as much water is going down the drain. Excellent ! Now we need a good paint roller cleaner.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by honestjohn Very Good, But One Possible Limitation
It works as advertised and does an excellent job on brushes used with latex paints. Very impressive. However, the manual and box very specifically recommend that for oil-based paints one use ONLY a Strip-Klean WHITE paint thinner which is virtually impossible to find. I've ordered it twice from different vendors and in both cases got the GREEN formula which also claims to be non-flammable. I must assume that the White has been replaced with the Green, or I am having a run of bad luck. Have not yet tried it with oil-based paints, and will have a fire-extinguisher nearby...just in case. For the price, though, this is a surprisingly useful, simple tool.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Teacher18 Wonderful Product
I was skeptical about this paint brush cleaner's capabilities but after trying this product I was proved wrong. I have always disliked cleaning paint brushes due to the time & mess, but with this product cleaning brushes is effortless & less time consuming. Ryobi has come through with creating another excellent product.

the idea of this paint cleaner is great, but the reality is using it makes it cumbersome and ineffective because of the many times you have to unfasten the top and rinse & clean the water tank. very cumbersome and time consuming. more work than it's worth.
