Tip & Tricks
Elastic Band Paint Brush Scraper
Wipe a paint-loaded brush along the rubber band. Excess paint will land in the can rather than in the lip. Your paint will last longer.
Saran Wrap Brush/Roller Keeper
For breaks or an extended period of Time
Wrapping your rollers or brushes in saran or plastic storage bags keeps them from drying out.
NOTE: This can be a little messy so you may want to wear gloves.
Paint Smell & Essential Oil
Kill odors with vanilla or essential oils.
1 tsp. per gallon of paint or one 15-milliliter bottle for a 5-gallon bucket.
Revive Hardened PAINT BRUSHES
Clean Brush with Fabric Softener
If you forget to clean your brushes or you stepped away too long from your painting
Just combine 2 tablespoons of fabric softener with warm water, and then soak your brushes in the mixture overnight, Wheeler says. A good scrub the next day should make your brushes as good as new.
