Clean spirit

A non-toxic alternative to white spirit that can be used to clean solvent-based paint from brushes.

B&Q’s Clean Spirit is a non-toxic alternative to white spirit. Like white spirit, it can be used to clean up solvent-based paint, but is much safer, non-flammable and is water based. You do need to work the cleaner into your brushes a little more than with white spirit.

In the long term, as the paint industry moves increasingly to water based products, these cleaners will no longer be required as water is all that is needed to clean up after water based painting projects.
