By now, you guys know that I love my HomeRight Finish Max Paint Sprayer.
If you don’t know that, then you have been living under a rock or you haven’t read about my toy chest makeover, french country chair makeover, black and gold french country desk, or the polka dot bed.
The one question that people always ask me about the Finish Max is whether or not its easy to clean.
And I don’t blame them a bit for asking. If there is any person in the world that understands their fear, it is me. If you read about the toy chest makeover, you know that I have dealt with my fair share of paint sprayers that were not easy to clean and didn’t even work well. I was even skeptical of the Finish Max at first.
I felt it was time to show you how to clean the HomeRight Finish Max paint sprayer and just how fast and easy it really is.
I’m a believe-it-when-I-see-it gal and I figured some of you were too.

Let’s do this!
**Update: It’s now even easier than this to clean a Finish Max Paint Sprayer! There’s a new attachment called the Rapid Clean that plugs right into your water hose and the paint sprayer and cleans it up in just a few minutes.
After you are done painting, discard or place back into the paint can any remaining paint in container. (Keep in mind if you thinned the paint with water, you may not want to put it back in the can with un-thinned paint. I do typically go on and put it back in the can because I know if I use the paint again, it will most likely be in the sprayer anyway and will need thinning.) Rinse out the container well and fill it up with water.
Twist the container back into place on the sprayer. Plug in the Finish Max and spray the water out.
Unplug the Finish Max. Unscrew paint container and suction tube, rinse well with water and set aside to dry.
Unscrew the nozzle (technical word is air cap ring) where the paint comes out. This will free the other two pieces of the nozzle (technical words: air cap and directional air cap) and rinse all three parts well.
Remove any remaining paint from around the brass fluid nozzle. You can do this with the included brush, or as I choose to do, my fingernail. Rinse brass nozzle with water. Also, unscrew and remove the brass nozzle and spray it well with water.
I also like to take my water hose and spray some water up the bottom of the sprayer and out the nozzle by depressing the trigger while spraying the water.
Lay it all out to dry. If you need to use it immediately, just dry off the parts with a towel and get going again!
10 minutes or less and you are done.
So. not only did you just get an entire piece of furniture painted in half (or even a 1/4 sometimes) the time it would take to roll and brush, but you also did all the cleanup in less than 10 minutes.
And I know I’ve spent longer than 10 minutes just trying to get paint out of brushes and rollers before, not to mention cleaning the paint trays.
No excuses with the Finish Max. Its easy to use and easy to clean.
