What the heck should I clean my brushes with?
What's the best Quart to buy for cleaning Aerogloss Dope off my brushes? I don't need to mix up a 4-ingredient Thinning Recipe, I just want to clean my brushes. MEK, Acetone?

Thanks in advance.

I always thought this stuff should work:

Seriously though, aren't you a long-time dope user? Wait, that didn't come out right. How have you been cleaning them up until now, haven't you been using that stuff for a while? Or maybe I'm thinking of SCIGS30....

I use dope thinner for cleaning brushes.
2nd place would be acetone, 3rd would be MEK. Don't even try "hardware store" lacquer thinner. It won't work.
If you can't get real dope thinner, AUTOMOTIVE lacquer thinner is REALLY close.

Q solution at $6.74.

...It's just that I'm at the Gooey End of my $6.99, 3.5oz Dope Thinner. I've got a decent stock of Sanding Sealer that I bought from Hobbylinc, I think, but now I just need a cost-effective brush cleaner. So, if Acetone's it, then I'll score a Q from HD at $6.74, and it's smooth sailing for a stretch!
Thanks for the quick reply ghrocketman and neil_w!

Score! Here's to hoping my brush is cleaner than it's been in months!
