Cleaning paint brush of Kilz Original


The can of Kilz Original says to clean my paintbrush with mineral spirits, but the store told my husband to use water and dish soap.
Is it okay to clean with water and dish soap?
If I need to clean with mineral spirits, can this be done in the sink? Is it okay to rinse the stuff down the sink, or how do I dispose of it?
Thanks so much!

Unless it is a very good expensive brush, pitch it. If it is a good brush, you MIGHT get it clean with spirits which you definitely should not rinse down the drain.Sounds like typical advise from HD or Lowe's, just say no to both of them
