airbrush cleaning

I am just starting to use a new airbrush, an improvement over my old Badger, I now have an Iwata HP-B using a Pasche D500S compressor, and I am going to use a Iwata brand "table top" cleaning station.
In the past I have used Windex to clean the brush between odd colours and for final clean up, once I left the Badger tips soak in Windex for some time and found it discoloured the finish of the tips, but I think I should'nt have left the parts soak.

My question is: (I use only acrylics, Tamiya), Is there any real concern about cleaning the Iwata brush by running Windex through, then rinsing with water?

thanks for any help!
Bruce G

      1. For cleaning - maybe - for thinning - NO. Use the 91% - it costs the same - Scott Gentry on Jan 9, 2013, 1:55 PM
