We were approached sometime ago about having safer non-flammable products to clean airbrushes than the white spirit, turps, lacquers, odourless thinners and other questionable products in regular use. After much research, assessing and testing we have two products 'A' is for water based media and 'O' for oil based media.

Airbrush Cleaner 'A'
(for use with Acrylic and water based media)
is for spraying through the airbrush when a colour change is necessary whilst working, also for soaking to clear a clogged one.

Place a few drops (1 ml) of the Airbrush Cleaner into the paint cup of the airbrush and spray into a 'cleaning pot'. Spray through until clear. Wipe the cup with kitchen towel and add new colour to the cup, teat spray on scrap paper.
 
For cleaning and releasing an airbrush clogged with acrylic paint and the like.
Put a small amount of Zest-it Airbrush Cleaner into a shallow tray. Having disconnected the airline, disassemble the airbrush and place in the fluid. Once the parts are clean, wash with water, dry and re-assemble.

Point to note; the fluid can make your finger 'slippy' so best practice would be Nitrile gloves for grip and hand protection, or a bowl of water and a hand towel to clean and dry hands while you work. You may otherwise find the small parts of the airbrush slipping out of your grip before you know it!

We tested many different (acrylic; gouache; watercolour; inks; chalk) products and found soaking for up to 10 minutes cleaned and released the airbrush. Different products may require longer soaking.
Fluid can be reused, decant the clear liquid and store in a clean labelled container.

Airbrush Cleaner 'O'
(for use with Enamels and oil based media)
multifunctional product for thinning paint, cleaning and restoring your airbrush after use with Enamels or oil based paints and inks.

For use at colour change:
Place a few drops (1 ml) into the paint cup of the airbrush and spray into a 'cleaning pot', spray through until clear. Empty remaining liquid from the cup and wipe dry with kitchen towel, add new colour and test on scrap paper.

To clean a clogged airbrush, disconnect from the airline, place in a suitable shallow sided container. and add a small amount of Airbrush Cleaner 'O'. Allow to soak for about 10 minutes, further soaking may be necessary depending on the type of paint/ink. Once the parts are clean, dry with a suitable cloth or leave to air dry.

Point to note; the fluid can make your finger 'slippy' so best practice would be Nitrile gloves for grip and hand protection, or a bowl of water and a hand towel to clean and dry hands while you work. You may otherwise find the small parts of the airbrush slipping out of your grip before you know it!
Fluid can be reused, decant the clear liquid and store in a clean labelled container.

We tested many different (enamels; oil paint; inks; other paint) products and found the above method worked well.

Safety note: When spraying through the airbrush point away from the body and face; do not breathe the spray; have adequate ventilation; wash hands frequently; promptly wipe up spills as the surface will be slippy; wear Nitrile gloves if skin is sensitive; eye protection if splashes are likely.
**Not for use with food/cake decoration; not for use with body/tanning applications.
