No odor
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This couldn’t be simpler to use , simply open the top of the bag , fill with water to fill line and swish around until completely dissolved. Add brushes that need cleaned and seal bag around the handles. I let my brushes soak for about 48 hours as they were stiff and hunker up from previous uses. I rinsed them thoroughly with water and allowed to air dry. My brushes are now soft and clean. Great product to save expensive paint brushes.

    Don’t waste your money!
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Got this product last week just in time for a painting project. Had a couple of paint brushes that were on there way for a deep cleaning and decided to try this out. I had it soak 48 hours, and it barely did anything. The only thing it did do was to form a soap bar at the bottom of the brush, and yes I only filled to the line and dissolved all the solution. Now I have to start all over again with the way i have been doing it for years.
      Wow! A great product.
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I always thought hardened paint brushes meant the garbage can! This product is magic. Simply add water, clean the bristles and rinse. I keep a package on hand for emergencies. The whole system is water based so no harsh products involved. Works great… it’s amazing.

        Didn't remove much paint and lost some bristles.
        Following the directions, I filled the bag with water up to the indicated line and stirred it until the crystals dissolved. Then I placed the paint brush in the bag, with the bristles pointing down and completely in the solution. After 24 hours, the latex paint on the brush had not softened, so I left the brush in the bag for the full 48 hours. Immediately after removing the brush from the bag, I placed the brush under warm running water and began gently combing. Some of the paint came off, mostly still clinging to the bristles that came loose. I might have done as well to simply pull out some of the paint-coated bristles without using Klean Strip. Maybe the bristles came out because it's an old brush, but whenever I have washed this brush after painting, very few if any bristles ever came loose. Maybe the paint didn't soften because it's Behr Premium Plus latex exterior paint. This paint is highly resistant to direct sunlight, rain, and age, and apparently is also highly resistant to Klean Strip. I think my best bet is to skip the Klean Strip and just continue my original method: wash the brush the best I can after each use and replace it with a fresh new brush after too much dried paint has accumulated.

          per the directions
          I was using a Woolster Pro brush which had dried latex paint collecting around the upper edge. So per your directions I placed the brush in the bag for two days and this is what I found. No I would not recommend this product.

            Destroyed my brush.
            It ate at the bristles and ruined a fairly expensive brush. No indication on the package explaining not for certain types of brushes or anything to that effect.

              Made cleaning up a breeze
              [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I used to spend a lot of time cleaning my brushes after painting, but this made it so much easier. Saving that extra time at the end is a huge benefit for me so I will definitely continue using this product.

                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I had a brush that I forgot to rinse after using it and it cleaned it up like new! This is great to have on hand for the times I get to busy and forget to clean the brush out. In exchange for my honest review I received a free sample to try. I will definitely recommend this product.

                  Great product!!!
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We were painting our foyer this past January and we used this Klean Strip Paint Brush Rescue to clean our brushes. This is a great product. You just open the bag and add water to the fill line and stir until the product is dissolved. We actually placed two brushes into the bag and let soak overnight. In the morning, the brushes were completely cleaned. All we had to do was rinse them and let them dry. All the paint was gone. We will definitely use this product again.

                    Works great
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Klean strip paint brush rescue is amazing. We've recently took on repainting our daughters room and it's been a hassle with the paint brushes until now. It's been super easy to use and works like a charm. It cleans them easily and fully. I highly recommend.
