It's All About The Google

I have to say that usually I can find what I want by Googling. Yesterday I was using my Niji waterbrushes as usual and one of them was acting out. LOLOL When I wanted water, it just wouldn't flow......maybe a little. I have a couple like this and couldn't figure out what to do. It was as if they were clogged somehow, but I couldn't see any obstructions like color, etc. I had thrown one away in the past because of it.

On a whim I Googled 'Clogged Niji Waterbrush' and I found this site:

I followed the procedure and it fixed both of my brushes. I did three things that were a little different from the instructions:

4. Where it says to use a q-tip to clean inside of sleeve, I brushed mine with a wet old tooth brush and then applied the q-tip.

7. Mine didn't look dirty and so I left that part alone.

8. For the brush tip, I wet it a little so all of the nylon bristles would adhere to one another, gently squeezed them together and then the rest was a cake walk.

Both pens are working like new. What a find.......and I did it all with Google!!! When searches don't work I change the words or position of the words and it works for me always! Gotta love that Google.

Thanks for stopping by to look and share all!!

Great tips!

I should send you mine, hehe. I gave up on using those darn things because I felt like I couldn't control the amount of water and the brushes are so big. I've gone back to the old fashioned paint brush.
