Save Leftover Paint in Smaller Containers

When you are done with a small glass jar with a screw lid, wash both pieces well and dry. The next time you have a paint job before putting the lid on the can, pour some into your little jar and store it.


When it's time to do a little touch up or small repair you can easily grab the right jar by the color. It's very easy to mix up and you don't need to lug out the big can and do all that tedious mixing!
