5-Gallon Bucket Liner
Even if you use reusable shopping bags, there’s a good chance you have some plastic grocery bags somewhere in your home. And a large trash bag can be used for a variety of projects in your workshop.
Use your extra trash bags as 5-gallon bucket liners. This tip is especially helpful when working with messy materials such as paint or grout. Simply place the trash bag inside the 5-gallon bucket and make sure that there is enough bag left over at the top so it won’t collapse inwards. When using this handy hint with paint, you can tie the bag shut to use for another day of working on your project. And, once you are done using the paint in the bucket, you can poke a hole in it to drain the paint back into the paint can. This hack makes for easy clean up!
The ubiquitous 5-gallon bucket can be used for lots more than just hauling stuff around! Check out these ingenious uses for 5-gallon buckets.
