Use a rubber band to wipe off excess paint. Wiping excess paint off on the side of the paint can is a messy process. Instead, try wrapping a rubber band around the can so that it stretches across the can’s top. After you dip your brush into the can, you can wipe it against the rubber band—and the excess paint will fall right back into the can.
Use fabric softener to loosen stiff brushes. Paint brushes can get stiff after a few uses. If your brushes are too stiff to use, try soaking them in diluted fabric softener and water for 30 minutes—then rinse with water. The solution will help to loosen up the bristles—and help you get a better, more even coat of paint.
Shake your paint. Instead of stirring your paint after it’s open, try shaking it while the can is still sealed. You’ll get the same result—just without the potential for a spill!
