How to Keep Paint Out of a Paint Can Rim

Most of us already know that painting can be a messy job. Ron offers a couple of tips that help keep the mess under control.

Whenever pouring paint from a can, it often collects in the rim. To avoid this, Ron suggests taking a nail and punching a hole in the rim. This allows the paint to run back into the can.

When it is time to replace the lid, Ron puts a cloth over the top of the can before hammering the lid back in place. This will keep the spatters on the rag… and not on Ron!
