Another Painting Tip

As you know, I’m all about saving time and money.  I’ve done a few posts on painting tools, tips and techniques.  As an entrepreneur, I enjoy watching the TV show Shark Tank (ABC) and they featured a great new product I’d like to share with my readers:

Paint Brush CoverIt’s called The Paint Brush Cover.  Whether you’re a landlord, real estate investor or homeowner in the middle of a painting project, you rarely finish it in one session.  So, what do you do with that brush?  I’ve usually wrapped it tightly in Saran Wrap and it’ll keep for hours or even a couple days if need be.

Well, this product is air tight, made of plastic, and holds almost 100% humidity!  Therefore, it’ll keep that brush moist and ready to use for weeks if necessary!  Truly a time saver!  And it accommodates brushes up to 3″ wide.

I’m going to order one at http://www.paintbrushcover.com.  And by the way, when you’re totally done with the project, don’t forget to clean your brush the right way.  Paint brushes are expensive … around $10-15 if you get the right brand.  (I recommend Purdy or Wooster.)  I use warm soapy water (or my trusty Krud Kutter) and a stiff wire brush to remove all the paint from the bristles.  Start in the spine, up close to the handle and brush down to the tip of the bristles.  A good brush should last for years if you treat it with love and kindness.  🙂

Happy painting!

  1. While that may be fine for brushes. I have found for rollers it isn’t any good. I bought one for rollers at menards. Wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.
