When you’re through with a painting project, you may be tempted to pour that little bit of leftover paint down the drain—but stop right there! Paint contains chemicals that can damage the environment, clog your pipes, and wreak havoc with septic systems. Instead, head to your local home improvement store, where you can buy a drying additive that can turn leftover paint into a solid lump that can then be thrown away. Another option is to mix the paint with kitty litter and let the can sit with the lid open until the paint solidifies.
