Store Leftover Paint In Ketchup Bottles

Up-cycle your old squeeze ketchup bottles. I use them to store my leftover water based paints. I use a funnel to pour the paint into the bottle and a rubber spatula to scrap the remaining paint from the can. Nothing is wasted, the empty can is nearly spotless.


They are easy to use, takes minimal shelf space, and stores for years in the plastic bottle. I also label them with the peel off label from the paint can, or with permanent marker. I have been using this method for over 15 years now and it really works well for me.

I like that idea too! Sounds like it would be easier to squirt out paint when needed for a touch up. So glad you thought of it.
