Conserve paint thinner when cleaning paint brushes

Conserve your paint thinner when cleaning your brushes, Use a tall narrow container instead of a short flat one. This way you will maximize the amount of thinner that you use to reach all the bristles, with less waste.

We use baby food jars as we have them. If you leave the liquid, it should settle, you can pour the liquid back into another container for used thinners.
I use a resealable salt scrub jar for the used thinners, it has a rubber seal and wire closer for the lid.
