Extract from the review.

   " Zest-it is a biodegradable, non-toxic and non-flammable brush cleaner."   " It is also sweet smelling, but  most importantly, it actually removes paint - witness my old, clogged fan brush, thoroughly cleaned with Zest-it!"

       Extract from the Report.
  "My own experiments with Zest-it were entirely successful in the sense that it behaved exactly how I wanted it to when diluting and manipulating the paint. For example, I had no problems thinning paint to a weak wash or, contrastingly, using it in an impasto way. I also tried other techniques, such as applying the paint with a painting knife, sponge and so on, and again the response was fine. My impression was that this medium flows more freely than turpentine and, depending on the ambient temperature and humidity, it dries a little slower than white spirit. Additionally, the product is suitable for cleaning brushes and other painting equipment."
