A Quick Guide to Using a 5 in 1 Painting Tool

In almost every painting job, there is some necessary wall patching and repair. A tool called a 5-in-1 tool has at least six uses that can make these repairs easier.

The sharp, straight edge is ideal for scraping out loose material and removing high spots.

The knife edge can also be used as a putty knife.

The pointed edge is used for cleaning out and widening cracks before patching them.

The hole in the center of the tool serves as a nail puller.

The side is ideal for opening paint cans, and the handle has a built-in hammer, for closing paint cans.

Finally, the curved surface can be used to squeegee excess paint out of rollers before you rinse them
