Jojoba for Easy Paint Cleanup

Do your weekend plans include painting? If so, we have a tip to help make cleanup a breeze. Before you get started, massage a few drops of jojoba onto exposed areas: hands, arms, legs, and hair. Pre-conditioning your skin with jojoba makes it easier to remove oil-based or latex paint or stains from your skin and from your hair.

After you’ve finished the job, clean up your brushes and your skin with jojoba. You won’t need harsh chemicals. Wrap your cleaned brushes in tin foil and store them for the next use. They will not be hard and brittle when you need them again.

One last tip: You may mix small amounts of the jojoba with oil-based paint and stain to improve the flow from the brush, to reduce brush marks and to improve penetration. The blend will take longer to dry. You’ll need to experiment to achieve the best balance between jojoba and paint.

jojoba for easy paint removal from skin and hair

Since jojoba is a wax ester, it will help condition the skin and hair making it easier to remove paint, especially latex paint. There's no need to use harsh chemicals to remove paint from skin, use our all-natural product and make cleanup quick and easy! We have yet to try massaging a drop of jojoba into natural bristle brushes before and after painting, but we think it would be beneficial of keeping bristles soft and making brushes easier to clean. If you use natural bristle brushes let us know how this works.

I bought your product... and my husband thought it was just another product I had to have - now he uses it all the time and reminded me when we're running low. So we both think it's great. Thanks.

Thank you so much for your prompt service.

After more than 20 years of practice I have used numerous products. The Jojoba Oil is superior to any and all.

We have been using Hobacare for nearly two years now and have found our family's skin is amazing looking - which is truly a feat considering the eczema and dry skin that so plagues us!

Every one of your claims are true - the lack of staining and smell, the affinity with the skin, and my clients love that they don't get up from the table feeling like greased pigs (my words). Of course, as a massage therapist, none of that would matter if the grip and glide weren't perfect... and they are.

I've been a masseuse for eleven years and your jojoba extract is the best stuff I've ever used! It's economical, clean, and every one of my clients like it.

I love this product. My esthetician had been using it on my skin for years. Trusting her knowledge of skincare and product-lines for the last 20+years, I decided to wean myself from traditional body moisturizers in 2018, and transition to jojoba oil for my basic skin care moisturization.

Your product is amazing and I couldn't be happier with it. It is high quality which is what I strive for in my own practice.

I started out trying the jojoba on an older leather day planner that I have. It is in very good condition, so I didn't think I would see much of a difference. Boy, was I wrong! I didn't realize how dull it was until I used the jojoba on it.
