To ensure your brushes have a long and productive lifespan you need to clean them or prevent the paint hardening. If you plant to use a synthetic paint brush again the next day, you can simply leave it in a jar of water overnight if you ensure the paint line is below the water line.
Although not recommended with synthetic brushes, if you are using oil based paints, then you simply wrap in cling-film overnight.
When your job is complete, remove any excess paint then wash thoroughly using warm water and washing up liquid. Once the brush is clean, rinse with fresh water then soak any excess water out using paper towels.
