For oil based paints only, rest the brush vertically in a can or jar of water, enough to cover the bristles. To use, shake the water off the brush, and wipe with a shop cloth (I like the paper kind). Never seems to interfere with the drying or application qualities of the paint. Of course, eventually the ferrule will rust.
