Those who love DIY projects, use the airbrush frequently to paint or spray different items with different colors. A lot of DIY projects require you to use the airbrush and almost every project requires at least 2 different colors.
So it is very obvious that you need to use the airbrush cleaner as well in every DIY project. But most of the airbrush cleaners that you find in the market or that you can buy from an online store are usually very expensive.
I have also spend a lot of money on these airbrush cleaners but then suddenly I thought why not make a DIY airbrush cleaner? Well, that idea was amazing and I decided to make my own DIY airbrush cleaning solution. Believe me, I have saved a lot of money after that.
So, here is a simple guide on how to make your own DIY airbrush cleaner.
Things You Need
To make your own airbrush cleaning solution you don’t need any expensive items. Most of the things you need could be found at your home, a few you might buy from the market or from an online store.
So here are the things you need:
- Windshield Water Fluid
- Dish Soap
- 91% Isopropyl Alcohol
- Distilled Water or Filtered Water
- A small funnel
- Solvent proof bottle to put Airbrush cleaner
Make DIY Airbrush Cleaner
Now, when you have all the required items, you need to mix the materials using a funnel and add that mixture into your solvent-proof bottle. Here are the ratios of each fluid that you need to make a perfect airbrush cleaner.
- 1 part of windshield water fluid
- 1 part of distilled water
- 1 part of 91% isopropyl alcohol
- 3 to 6 drops of dish soap
Shake this mixture well and keep that safe in a bottle. Your airbrush cleaner is ready and you can use it to clean the airbrush during your DIY projects. Whenever you need to change the color you can clean your airbrush with this mixture so that colors in the airbrush won’t mix and you always get a perfect color.
You should also clean your airbrush after you complete your DIY project in which you have used this airbrush. Before keeping it in the garage room or in your tools box, make sure that you clean it well so that you can use it again without any blocking in the spray.
