Weekly Tip: Extend the Life of Your Paint

To extend the life of your leftover paint, try doing the following:

-Cover the opening of the can with plastic wrap before closing it. This will create another seal.

-Use a mallet instead of a hammer to close your paint can. A hammer may dent the lid of the can, causing an improper seal of the can.

-Store the paint away from extreme heat and cold. Extreme temperatures will spoil the paint and make it unusable.

If you are not planning to reuse the paint. To dispose of the paint, find a local hazardous waste company to drop off the paint containers for proper disposal.
