What can you use instead of airbrush cleaner?
In short, the best alternatives for airbrush cleaners are denatured alcohol, simple clean, windshield washer, or Windex for acrylic paint and cellulose thinner or windshield washer for enamel paints. Isopropyl alcohol works great for most commercial airbrush paints.
Can I clean my airbrush with Windex?
A lot of people use a window cleaner, like Windex, that contains ammonia to clean their airbrushes after spraying acrylic paint. Apparently, you can get away with this because the amount of ammonia is small. But, I would always flush with clean water after using it.
Can you use paint thinner to clean airbrush?
I’m no expert in this (or anything else) but have been using lacquer thinner as my primary airbrush cleaner for over a decade without any issues. I use it because it cleans everything and does it well.
