This is something that anyone who paints... anything should keep in their tip arsenal.
The reason for putting the brush in the freezer? Paint molds. It molds when exposed to air for a period of time without enough air to let it dry out. So if your "dirty"brush is exposed to a pin hole in the plastic... it has a chance of harboring mold. Do you want to paint that on your walls???
If the brush is in the freezer... no mold.

I've always wrapped mine in plastic or a baggie and stuck them in the fridge. Great tip.

This is really cool. I'm gonna try it.
Usually I just stick my brush or roller in a plastic bag and roll it up tightly -- usually stays that way for days (sometimes weeks) -- and I just take it out and use it.
I'm lazy! (laughing)
