7. Paint can lids with spouts are amazing
So your all set to paint your room. You crack open your paint can and pour the paint into your paint tray. Instantly paint is running down the side of your paint can and also fills the rim. You know you can let the paint sit in the rim or else you will never get it closed, so you you run you finger around the rim, causing more paint to drip down the can. “whatever” you think “lets just paint already”. When you’ve finished painting one of two things happen…either the paint left in the rim is still wet, and when you pound the metal lid back on the wet paint comes flying out and splatters on your face, OR the rim paint is dry and you spend a embarrassingly large portion of time trying to dig it out with a screwdriver so that the lid will close.
I’h here to tell you, there’s a better way. Take three of your hard-earned dollars and buy a paint can lid with a spout. The first time you use it you will realize that your pre paint lid self was an idiot. The red paint lids by Shur-Line are my absolute favorite because the spout folds down completely flat and you can still stack your 57 paint cans with ease.
