Sure paintbrushes are designed to you know… paint. But there are a variety of other ways you can use this tool, and none of them include a tin of Hog Bristle.
1. Brush off sand
Keep a paintbrush in your bag for return trips from the beach.
Remove sand from chairs, toys, the kids and yourself before opening the car door.
You’ll have a lot less to vacuum next time you clean it.
2. Dust in hard-to-reach places
Get into hard-to-reach places in wicker furniture, baskets, intricate statues and knick-knacks with a small natural-bristle brush.
It’s also great to use for dusting all your delicate items.
3. Baste and glaze in the kitchen
Use a small synthetic paintbrush to glaze pies, or brush on marinades and sauces while roasting or baking, or spread sauces on meat.
They are easier to clean than most pastry brushes.
