Ok ... I’m sold on using Future and have watched several videos on doing so but ...what do you clean your airbrush with after spraying the Future thru it. Nobody mentioned that little tidbit.

Works well. Alternatively, I have used a mixture of windshield washing fluid, alcohol and water with a little glycerin mixed in. The ammonia in Windex can affect the chrome plating on airbrushes, but to be honest have used it with my Iwata, Badger and Paashe brushes with no ill-effect. Wouldn't let them soak in it though.

some airbrushes like Grex and Iwata indicate ammonia based cleaner is not to be used

Otherwise, any commercial airbrush cleaner for acrylics, like Testors.

Dish soap maybe a little better than the glycerin, also a tad cheaper(nt)

isopropyl (less airbrush risk than ammonia - maybe less effective, though).

Lacquer thinner cleans just about anything.
