Among the most annoying things when painting a room using a can of paint are all of the drips along the edges of the can. It can become extremely messy and actually make it difficult to reseal the can when you’re finished. To prevent drips, do this: Grab a rubber band. Just run a rubber band over the paint can so it’s stretched across the center of the opening. Each time you dip the brush, rub it across the rubber band so excess paint drips back into the can, and not over the sides. How easy is that?
