Removing 5-minute epoxy from brushes

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know any tips or tricks to dissolve 5 min epoxy off of brushes?....or is the brush wrecked?

One of my favorite brushes ended up taking a swim in some epoxy I had mixed up on the table, and I didn't realize it till after the stuff had hardened on the bristles.....

You can remove epoxy with rubbing alcohol...60% or higher. You can also use denatured alcohol. I would just let the brush soak in it overnight and it should just flake off.

I use Methylated Spirits for thinning and cleaning up of epoxy resin, works a treat
