I've found that ammonia is perfect, and I also use acrylic laquer thinner. Both clean out the Future with no problems - just make sure you blast the stuff through the gun BEFORE the Future hardens in the gun.
Using the laquer thinner, I've found that I have to clean my gun far less frequently than by using normal thinners. Blast it through at about 25-30 psi and it should remove anything in the gun. This shouldn't replace normal cleaning procedures, I just find that when I break down the gun now, it's usually spotless.

Cheers, LeeTree

Windex, Ammonia, and alcohol all work fairly good to get future out. Soak the parts and clean them good with a pipecleaner and/or q-tip. Just be sure not to let it dry or set inside the airbrush. If that happens, you won't be very happy (voice of experience talking...).

Tips/suggestions for cleaning Future from airbrush

Greets everyone,

I am somewhat new to this, and am getting ready to shoot some Future thru my airbrush for the first time. Any suggestions as to how to clean up the airbrush after Future would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
