How to Store a Paint RollerBy: Joe Truini
When painting, it can be time consuming to clean out your paint roller at the end of the day. To eliminate clean up time between coats, store the roller in an empty potato chip tube.
After removing any excess paint, simply slip the roller into the chip tube.
Slide the roller off the frame.
Put the plastic lid on the container to seal out air and keep the paint roller from drying out before the next coat.
If you won’t be painting for a few days, seal the top of the chip tube with tape, and put it in the refrigerator. The cooler temperature and high humidity will keep the paint from drying out until you can complete the painting job.
