I’m a repair man and use a lot of oil-based paint. To save money, I recycle my paint thinner. Here’s how to do it.
After cleaning the pan, pail, and brushes, pour the used paint thinner into a new container. Let it sit for a few days. The solids will settle to the bottom, and the thinner on top will be clear and ready to reuse.
