A review of brush soap here. link

I highly recommend Pink Soap but would urge any painter to use whatever brush soap brand that is available to you.

Yup, I swear by brush soap. I use The Master's Brush cleaner; it comes in a tan colored plastic container. Pink soap is good, too.

I keep meaning to get some soup. in a pinch I will use liquid dish soap. Dawn is good and gentle.

I've heard that "dish soap" (assuming that we're talking a detergent here) is not a good thing, and is actually bad for real hair brush bristles.
Presumably not an issue for artificial hairs.
I'm also a big advocate of The Master's Brush Cleaner since I recently discovered it.

Not the liquid stuff you put into a machine but the hand wash dishes kind.

And I would not use it too often, the made for brush cleaners are more gentle on natural hair brushes.

What Tacitus said. The Master's Brush Cleaner is the best by far IMHO. I've used it for longer than I can remember and it never failed me. It even brought back some brushes I thought were long gone bristle wise.

I can't say that about Pink Soap yet! My very bad brushes are pretty clogged though. grin

Master's is excellent – I've been using it for about ten years. Buy some.
