I need to touch up yearly. Southwestern exposure is tough on wood windows, door frames and trim. But paint does not last in a can; it turns to "cottage cheese", and the can rusts, with flakes falling in. Are there storage tricks? Vaseline the can rim, perhaps? I haven't tried but will storing upsidedown. Any other tricks or tips out there? Do y'all open the can with a screw driver, or is there a gentler way? Thank you for sharing.

When you store the paint it only has a certain amount of pot life.Depending on quality of paint.
If your paint is chunky when you go to use it,bring it someplace that has a shaker,this will help,also use a paint strainer when you want to use it will strain out the chunk and flakes and give you good paint when you use it.

True...........also - store your paint somewhere you would be comfortable - it will be too - and last a long time.........
