For years, I've spent about 15 minutes with running water, trying to get a 3/8" or 1/2" nap roller clean, and then tried in vain to squeeze the water out by hand. Then the roller sits on end, on a stack of newspapers, and continues to drip. If I was very thorough, the roller would dry, clean, in about 36 hours. However, the more typical case is that the lowest 1/4" of the roller would get the residual paint particles, and would be hardened. After a few days, this section would be permanently hardened.
No more ! I spend 5 minutes with a hose, getting most of the paint out. Then, outside, I spin it for 10 seconds, and 90% of the paint that's left flies off onto the ground. Then another minute or less under a hose. And a final 10-second spin gets the clean water out. (I choose to spin twice, with a short rinse in between, to use less water.) And the roller is so dry that you can use it right now, or put it in storage and not worry about it.
Working with a paint brush is similar, but takes less time. Just like a roller, if you can't get the water out of a brush, the remaining paint particles will dry into the brush, and you may never get them out. I've been propping brushes up vertically, bristles up, and letting them drip-dry back toward the handle. Needless to say, the bristles closest to the handle get progressively harder with each use. No more !
I am recommending, without reservation, this item to everyone I know who has tried to wash out a brush or roller.
The key is to first remove excess paint with a brush comb or roller scraper. Then spin the brush/roller in a bucket of water with the Shur-Line 5200, and follow with a dry-spin in an empty bucket. Repeat until brush/roller is clean and dry. The brushes will then resemble Phyllis Diller's hair-do, so wrap them in a paper towel and return to shape. Brushes and pads will be ready for reuse in about half and hour.
This product doesn't REPLACE typical cleaning, just makes it easier and more effective. I highly recommend the Shur-Line 5200.
I've found it works best if I have time to let the brush soak in water. I let mine sit in a "Handy Paint Pail" (with a liner for cleaning), which keeps the bristles from resting on the bottom. Much of the latex will float to the bottom.
Putting the brush in the spinner can be a bit tight, and I've pinched my skin before (not too bad). Make sure the brush is well centered, as this greatly effects the spinning action. While pumping up and down works, I've found it works much better to simply make a quick downward push, and let it complete it's spin. It's much more powerful...you'll see the bristles really separate.
Very nice tool.
