The most common question I get asked is “How do you keep your paint colors fresh?” I hope and believe that the answer is simple. If you have the proper equipment and proper attention, your paint colors have no way of going bad. So, the key is to get the proper attention. Make sure you’re using the proper brushes and supplies.
If your brush and paint are old and brittle, it’s unlikely that you’ll get any paint off the brush. A new brush and paint will be more likely to cause a problem.
Also, remember that brushes and paint are both made from materials that are meant to be used once and then thrown away. If youre going to leave your brushes and paint in your garage, put them in a container that is meant to store paint. Then take the container out and toss it in the trash.
Brush and paint are very similar in that they both require special tools that are meant to last more than one use. But just because brushing is not as durable and can cause problems, it doesn’t mean that painting is not. Many paints are meant to be used only once, and then tossed. Even if that paint is meant to be used over and over again, the paint itself is not meant to last more than one use, so its best to dispose of it properly.
It’s always good to throw out the old paintbrush and brush cleaner, and just buy new ones. This is especially true if you’re painting a new home. The paint itself may be tough to remove and it can take some effort to get it to the state that it was in when you bought it.
This is why it is always good to buy new paints, and to dispose of old ones as necessary. It is easy to put the paint back into the bucket after you use it, and the paint doesn’t wear out as quickly as some paints. I often keep two old ones in the cupboard, in case I need to use them again.
It is true that paint is an expensive substance to buy, but you can always get a cheap one at your local hardware store. Most paint stores will tell you how much paint you can get for your dollar, and they may even let you take it home so it is easier to dispose of later.
I always say that buying paint and then having to dispose of it is like buying an expensive coat of paint and getting a cheaper coat later. If you are a bit of a hoarder, you might want to consider buying a cheap paint because if you are going to need to dispose of it, you will probably need to get it from a thrift store (and thus get rid of it before you have to dispose of it).
You might have to get rid of the paint, but once you have done that it is easy to get it. My mom and I made a decision not long ago where we only wanted to buy paint for our house. Why? Because we are not big on taking care of it. If we were going to take care of it we would do it ourselves. As we have learned, not every paint store accepts your paint can and will ship it to you.
My mom and I made that same decision. We didn’t get rid of the paint because we are not big on taking care of it. We don’t think it is worth going to all the trouble of cleaning it up ourselves. We did it in order to be able to paint on the walls in our house without worrying about what we would come up with if we did.
