Keep Your Paint Roller Fresh In A Pringles Can

Keep Your Paint Roller Fresh In A Pringles Can

If you’re in the middle of a multi-day painting project, the last thing you want to do at the end of a long day is clean gobs of paint off your roller. Instead, store the wet roller in a Pringles can overnight to keep it fresh and ready to use.

Just stick your wet roller in the can, close the lid, and tape it shut to make sure no air sneaks in. Store it in the fridge overnight, and it should still be moist and ready to go when you pull it out in the morning. Wrapping the roller in plastic and sticking it in the fridge is a pretty well-known trick, but the Pringles can method is quicker and much less messy.
