    When painting decorative trim and molding and dipping your brush straight into a paint can –  Place a rubber band around the open can so you can wipe the excess paint off the brush and not the side of the can every time you dip.  This keeps the can’s lip clean – no build up of paint to have to clean up. i needed this idea earlier today
