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. You can also clean untreated wooden surfaces by moistening them and then working in the concentrated linseed oil soap. After this, however, they cannot be coated with oil. Diluted with water (1 l water / 10 ml soap), the soap can also be used to clean stone and marble.
