Hey Everyone!

I just got a new KopyKake airbrush. Can anyone tell me what they use to clean theirs besides using the actual cleaning solution? Can I use something else I can pick up from Wal-Mart or the grocery store?

thanks,

If it is just air brush colors running water through it will help. When I do dusts with alcohol (everclear is my choice) you can run some of the plan alcohol through it.

You are welcome.

I would also suggested that you clean it as soon as you get done with it. If you let it set out, then the colors can dry in there.

Dissolve a denture cleaner tablet in some water and that will clean any trace of color from your airbrush. Francis Kyper taught me that in an airbrush class years ago, and my now +30 year old airbrush is as good as new! Just run some of the solution thru the airbrush, put your finger over the end to back flush, then clean well with warm water. IF you ever need a deep cleaning....you can take apart the airbrush and soak the needle and tip in a little of the solution for a few min, put it back together and backflush with water and your set to go again.
