Green Tip of the Week
Green Tip of the Week for 20 May 2013Cleaning your paint roller consumes lots and lots of water. To reduce water consumption, scrape off excess paint with a putty knife or paint stirrer before rinsing. Also, wrap the roller in plastic wrap in between coats to saves time and water. Moisten the roller with water before applying paint. This will help prevent paint from drying on the roller so you can use it again and again.
