Default Cleaning out your airbrush

i have a mill. paasche brush. and so far.. so good.. but i don't believe in buying premade solution to run through the brush.. i only use water based paints.. and so far i've been using warm water.. but.. how about rubbing alcohol. or what do you use thanks..

I use water and rubbing alcohol to clean mine. See what your seals are made of the alcohol could dry out rubber seals. I hear that people also use window cleaner as well.
