How do I clean up paint in an environmentally friendly way?

I know I’m supposed to avoid washing a lot of paint down the sink but how am I meant to clean the brushes and rollers?


To begin the clean-up remove as much excess paint as possible by brushing or rolling out on newspaper. Where water-based paint is concerned, wash brushes, rollers and other equipment in water. Remember that turps is needed when using oil-based paints. It is vital to rinse equipment well and, if necessary, straighten brush bristles with an old comb. To save time, mess and water use a Rota Cota® Rolla Cleana to clean roller covers.
