How can you go wrong spending less than a dollar for a tool that simplifies paint pouring and reduces the mess? This handy spout snaps onto the rim of a gallon or quart can and directs the paint where you want it. Plus it prevents paint from running down the side of the can and creating a mess on the floor or drop cloth. You'll find these at home centers and paint stores.
Paint Touch-Up in a Pen
Got some dings, scratches or nail holes to touch up? Great. All you have to do is find the old paint can, pry off the lid, stir the paint, find a brush and you're all set. That's assuming the paint hasn't dried out. Or you could keep a Slobproof Paint Pen in your junk drawer and be done in minutes.
When you're finished painting a room, just load the pen with matching paint and snap on the cap. Later, when you've got a ding to touch up, give the pen a few shakes and go to it.
They're a little spendy. But it's sure hard to beat the convenience.
