The 5 Second Way to Save Your Paintbrush

I just love painting every room in my house said no one ever. And although I love the finished look, painting and everything that comes with it (tapping off, cutting in, touching up) can make it a tedious task. There’s been quite a few times when I was this close to being done and ran out of paint or it’s midnight and I just can’t muster up the strength to paint one more inch. The LAST thing I want to do is clean up and rinse out my brush or roller. Well did you know you don’t have to?

This little trick keeps your brush soft and the paint on your brush from drying and getting hard which means no more throwing away a $10 brush because it got all crusty (please tell me I’m not the only one that does this).

All you need is saran wrap and your brush. That’s it. Simply wrap your brush in a piece of saran wrap making sure to cover all the bristles. The saran wrap locks in the moisture and keeps the paint from drying while you make another run to Home Depot or take a 2 24 hour nap. When you’re ready to paint again simply remove the wrap and you’re good as new.
