I do a lot of painting on fondant with food coloring and vodka. The trouble is, some colors are more stubborn about getting out of the shaft of the brush than others (blacks, blues, reds). Even after a thorough cleaning, I'll go to use it on a different color and find when I dip it in vodka, there is still a tinge of the last color.

Just wondering if any of you folks out there have any tricks that help clean brushes better.

I just try to wash them really well with soap and water. If I have any concearns I just dedicate that brush to that color.

With dusts and powders you can actually use cornstarch intead of soap and water to clean the powder out of the brush.
