But if you know you'll be returning to your paint work before long, you can either do either of two things:
- Wrap the brush or roller in a plastic bag and put in the freezer. This should preserve the brush or roller indefinitely.
- If you don't the idea of putting brushes in a food zone, you can still wrap them in plastic and keep outside at room temperature. Just make sure the plastic is airtight. This should preserve the brush or roller for a few days.
