Pin 29–tape to remove lint from roller

Bonus Pin!!!  I’ve been hearing from some of you that you are planning on doing some painting of your own soon and I didn’t want to hold out on this one!  There are a few variations of it – using various tapes, lint rollers, whatever – but the general idea is use something sticky to wrap around the roller before you paint.

TADA!  All that lint would’ve ended up on your wall!  Boooooooooooo!

Bottom line – DO IT!!

I’ve actually been doing this for a long time.  It’s quick and easy and since you’re set-up for painting there is usually painters tape hanging around within reach.  It works just as well if you use masking tape or a strong lint roller.  If I’m using  a longer nap roller I might do it twice to really get all of it.  Super awesome way to avoid pulling paint soaked linty things off your wall while you’re painting.

One more week of paint pins coming up!
