Ok ... Iā€™m sold on using Future and have watched several videos on doing so but ...what do you clean your airbrush with after spraying the Future thru it. Nobody mentioned that little tidbit.

Windex...

February 13 2018, 5:17 PM 

Works well. Alternatively, I have used a mixture of windshield washing fluid, alcohol and water with a little glycerin mixed in. The ammonia in Windex can affect the chrome plating on airbrushes, but to be honest have used it with my Iwata, Badger and Paashe brushes with no ill-effect. Wouldn't let them soak in it though.

Dish soap maybe a little better than the glycerin, also a tad cheaper(nt)

I use SMALL amounts in my cleaner mix - no prob's. I also use...

isopropyl (less airbrush risk than ammonia - maybe less effective, though).

If your airbrush recommends ammonia based cleaner, like a Badger or Sotar, then Windex.

February 13 2018, 5:19 PM 

some airbrushes like Grex and Iwata indicate ammonia based cleaner is not to be used

Otherwise, any commercial airbrush cleaner for acrylics, like Testors.

Lacquer thinner cleans just about anything.

If you have ventilation or use one of those cleaning stations - cleans anything out of the airbrush.
