Your brush cleaner shouldn't give you a headache. Our Coconut Oil Soap is gentle on the senses and your water-based media brushes, but it sure washes away leftover water-based paint. Keep your Trekell brushes looking like they just came off the factory floor -- and keep money in your pocket -- with this long-lasting four ounce container.
I bought this as well as the linseed oil soap and I’m very pleased with both. I’ve used watercolor longer than oils, and I finally have a good cleaner instead of ordinary soap. Really glad to be taking better care of my brushes now!
For some reason, some of the Trekell brushes are hard to clean. It leaves the paint near the ferrule. This, partnered with my brush restorer, assures me I can be a little rough when cleaning my brushes and still restore them to the perfect condition. Little expensive, and if you're on the fence about it, I'd go for it. It's overall pretty great. However, I'd prioritize the restorer over the soap. So if you're short on cash, get the restorer and $2 bar of soap from store. HOWEVER, If you wanna splurge on your brushes, I'd get it. :) Hope this helps.
Goes a long way, I love using this and the restorer. It’s totally worth it!
I enjoy using this soap so much. My brushes are a big investment and I want to clean them with the very best soap. I like that this soap cleans my brushes without leaving them feeling dry and brittle.
The coconut oil soap is wonderful for keeping brushes conditioned. I use it on my hands too after a painting session especially if I have paint on them. I bought some new brushes and I want to keep them in good condition, so I ordered the coconut oil soap and the brush restorer. I use it on my old brushes and they are as good as new.
Excellent gentle soap
Picked up the sample of this initially for my class kit to help clean a deep blue out of my brush at the end of class. Unlike every other brush cleaner found this didn't strip all the oils out of my hand but removed all the paint and left my natural brush feeling soft and my skin clean but not stripped. Decided to pick up full sized tin for my home studio. I clean my full brush collection about once every two weeks and after almost 6 months I still have LOADS left. Good deal, excellent quality, gentle and works great on both my natural kolinsky and squirrel and on my synthetics. Must have when matched with restorer!
