Airbrush cleaning tips

Hi all,

I recently got my Iwata airbrush to do make-up applications. I was wondering if you would recommend cleaning the airbrush with interdental brushes (0.7mm) that is dipped in rubbing alcohol? I have used pipe cleaners to try and get rid of the foundation that might be stuck within the airbrush but didn't like the fluff that was left behind.

Any tips or advise would be great.
 
Hi @Helet Conradie,

Knowing that you are from SA I can recommend you get "The pink stuff" from your local Builders Warehouse. Dilute it 10:1 (water:pink stuff). For the cup I use a cheap round hog hair brush. To get into the back of the tip I use a long thin (the hair not the handle) rigger brush.

Thank you! Will definitely try this
