cleaning brushes?

Hi Everyone, I used latex paint on some furniture, then washed the brushes with warm soapy water like the package said to, but there are tiny clumps of paint still stuck to the ends of the bristles. I can't get them off! What can I do? I've never done this before... Thanks!

Use a brush comb. You can get it at a paint store. And a small wire brush

use brush cleaning liquid from the depot with the comb.Leaves it real nice. BTW which end of the bristle are you talking about. the end you use to paint or the end near the handle

Okay Thank You both! I'll have to make my eighteenth trip to home depot this week today
The dried paint was on the end of the brush that I painted with...

Thanks

If you get the liquid brush cleaner don't throw it out when you are done keep it covered and use it over and over.

Next time, wash the brushes as soon as you are done painting.
