Default Mod Podge question

I just started using Mod Podge and I was just wondering how/where everyone cleans their brushes and stuff. I know, seems like a silly question, right? Well, I've been doing it in my sink and it occurred to me that since mod podge is really glue, that it might cause build-up in my plumbing. Has anyone had any issues with this? Is there a "safer" way to clean up after using Mod Podge? If this is a stupid question - just tell me. I can take it.

Thanks,
Christine

I don't think there ARE any dumb questions...I have been using mod podge for years ( even since the 70's) and I don't think there would ever be a problem with it clogging up plumbing. It is water based and if you flush it down with plenty of water while you are washing your brush, it should be fine. Have fun!

Thanks Marianne, for making me feel better about asking this question. Looks like I don't have anything to worry about.

Thanks,
Christine

I buy mine at Walmart for around 20 cents a piece, the foam ones. I use that and a paper plate and just throw them away when Im done.

snowcountry311 - no fair! I don't have an AC moore.
Guess I'll be going to Walmart like SkyesMom.
Thanks you guys! I am so frugal though that I'll probably try to clean the foam brushes too.

Don't feel bad, I have always cleaned my foam brushes just like my regular brushes...old habits die hard, I guess!

I've found my foam brushes don't clean well at all after using them with acrylic paint or with Mod Podge type product. They always have product left on them and get stiff.

I toss the foam brushes if I use them. But I almost always use a wide paintbrush (for acrylics or whatever, like 1"). I can rinse it out in warm water and not have it keep any of the mp in itself! I find it easier this way, I hate standing there squishing the mp out of the foam!
