DecoArt® Brush and Stencil Cleaner is an all-purpose, non-toxic, biodegradable cleaner that removes paints from brushes, hands, stencils and fabrics. It works with both wet and dried paint and leaves brushes soft and pliable. It can also be used as an all-purpose jewelry cleaner. Do not use on pearls or costume jewelry. Cleaner use lessens the scrubbing needed so brushes last longer.
