Linseed oil soap for cleaning brushes

Linseed oil soap is made of natural linseed oil and is ideal for cleaning brushes used to apply oils and oil-based paints. Simply soak the brush in pure linseed oil soap (usually overnight) and later thoroughly rinse it with water. Concentrated linseed oil soap can also clean untreated wooden surfaces, once cleaned they no longer require an oil coating. Diluted with water (1 l water / 10 ml soap), the soap can also be used to clean stone and marble.
