I was looking for hints for cleaning my airbrush, I have a Paasche VL.

I have been tearing it down EVERY time I finish with it and this is tedious, now I have been modelling for 35 years so I know some things are tedious ;-).
As I clean with acetone, I was wondering if I could blow some through it until it is clear, and do a tear down every couple of days?

With my airbrush i flush it like that sometimes with Badger airbrush cleaner - it seems to do the job. Sometimes i tear it down and clean it that way, but that is only because i put it in an airbrush cleaning bath i picked up for about 30 afterwards. However flushing the cleaner through it like i would paint seems fine, i haven't had any problems.
