Use canvas instead
Plastic sheets are great for protecting
woodwork or furniture,
but they're a bad choice for floors.
They're slippery on carpet and
they don't stay put. Even worse,
plastic promotes tracking. That's
because spills and drips sit on
the surface and dry very slowly,
giving you plenty of time to step
in the paint and track it around.
Fabric, on the other hand, lets
paint dry fast, from above and
below. Canvas drop cloths are
best, but a double layer of old
bed sheets works well too.
