10 tips to reconcile with painting

The timing of the work is for many individuals in the mission! All the little nonsense like the traces of paints or the very hard brushes make us waste an incredible amount of time and tend to discourage us. To reconcile with painting, here are 10 tips that will make your life easier.

Store brushes easily

Instead of cleaning it, put it in a box of crisps and store it in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning, when the roller is pulled, it is still wet and ready to be used again.

Cut the ribbon before pulling it

Cut the edges of the rolls into shreds


The Family Handyman The jagged edges with tiny beads of paint seem harmless, but they will leave traces in the work. Just cut them leaving a slightly tapered edge, and our roll will be like new. Source: The Family Handyman
