      When you paint a room, put some extra paint in a small jar and keep it handy for quick touch-ups. pinner said "I did this Aug. 2011 - don't use a baby food jar - use a peanut butter jar that has a PLASTIC lid or it will rust - that was a tip from my painter - it's all stored in a cabinet in the house - just take it out and shake well and use a Q-tip for quick touch-ups."
