How to Keep a Paint Roller from Drying Out

Now if you’ve run out of time before you’ve been able to finish your painting job, no need to clean your roller, simply place it inside a plastic bag like this one, give it a couple of twists, and secure it with a tie.  Now the next day, you can just take this out and continue on with your project.  If it’s going to be more than a day, put this in a freezer.  Then when you’re ready to begin, take it out, thaw it out, and go back to work.
