You think you’re ready to tackle that paint job – but do you have a rubber band?  You’ll need one.  Here’s why.  Stretch a heavy-duty rubber band across the top of the paint can, anchoring it at the handles.  When you wipe a paint-loaded brush across it, excess paint will land in the can rather than in the lip.  You’ll not only save paint, but re sealing the lid will be much easier.
