If you’re crafty, you may have small bottles or jars of colorful acrylic paint at home. When it comes time to clean up after you’ve made your DIY project, what do you do with the leftover paint? While it’s perfectly fine to wash your brushes in the sink and let the paint residue go down the drain, any leftover paint should not. Craft paint is a household hazardous waste, and it can also clump and clog pipes. If you must dispose of craft paint, let it dry out and place it in the trash. You can paint scrap paper and let it dry, or just leave the jars or bottles open and let them dry out naturally.
