Well, here is a tip to save a damaged paint brush from the trash can!
Acrylic paint or medium can make the bristles hard and ruin a good brush.
Take the paint brush into undiluted alcohol in a container. Leave it for a few minutes; stir and tap it repeatedly; check constantly to see when it gets soft again:
It will start getting soft as the alcohol dissolves the medium or paint:
Repeat, stir and tap against the conteiner as needed. It will be soft and usable again!
Once you are satisfied with its softness, wash the brush with soap and water so the alcohol is not in there anymore. Store upright preferably.
