How should you store left over paint? Ron has the answer!
Millions of gallons of paint go to waste every year, often because it wasn’t put away properly. Here’s how to make sure the leftover cans from your home projects stay fresh and ready for future touch-ups. The key to proper paint storage is keeping the paint in a properly sealed container and away from excessive temperature swings. For maximum shelf life, according to the National Paint and Coatings Association, you should:
1. Cover the opening of the paint can with plastic wrap.
2. Put the lid on securely and make sure it doesn’t leak.
3. Turn the can upside down to allow the paint to create its own seal.
4. Store the can upside down in a place that’s safe from freezing and out of reach of children and pets.
