Household hint: Know your paint brushes. Synthetic vs. natural bristle brushes. The next time you shop for paint brushes, remember that synthetic bristles of nylon or polyester are best choice for latex paint. The water in this paint will degrade the bristles in natural bristle brushes which are intended for oil paint.
