Use A Rubber Band As a Paint Brush Scraper

The next time you need to tackle a major painting project and using a paint brush, a simple rubber band could save you from a huge mess.
After dipping a brush into paint can, it’s natural to scrape off some of the excess paint on the inside edge of the can. This works in the short term, but all that paint will splatter once you pound the lid back into place. Instead, stretch a thick rubber band across the length of the can, and use it to wipe down your dripping brush. Once you’re done, just throw out the rubber band, or rinse it off to use again. It’s a simple hack to avoid a big headache.
