Speaking of brush maintenance... how many of you use the sleeves the brushes came in for storage?ProWallGuy said:And every time I break out a new brush, I run it under water (for latex) or dip it in some thinner (for oil) and spin them back out. It keeps the paint from drying up in the heel .

Using velcro or buttons just plain suck. I can't string close it tight or loose, and the sleeve moves around on the brush, messing up the outer bristles. I saw in Jobsite magazine a company that makes permanent leather brush covers that I will be looking into.
