It always happens: You're in the middle of a
painting project when something comes up that pulls you away. Don't worry about cleaning up your paint-filled roller or brush before rushing out the door. Instead, place it in a ziplock bag, squeeze out all the air, and stash it in the freezer. When you're ready to pick up where you left off, simply take the package out and let the brush thaw for about 15 minutes. Not only will this save you time with messy cleanup, it will also conserve paint, saving you a few hard-earned dollars in the long run.
