cleaning oil based primer from rollers
3po3 on Dec 27, 2011Couldn't agree more. If nothing else, for the environmental reasons, it's too much trouble to clean the rollers, then try to dispose of the residue.Helpful Reply
Bernice H on Feb 18, 2012Thank you, thank you guys! I absolutely HATE trying to clean rollers or brushes. What a waste of time and water! Hubs runs and runs the water, cleaning cleaning cleaning! Drives me up a wall. You know where the water is going, too. I have always stuck mine in a plastic bag, to reuse soon,and sometimes even put them in the freezer for another painting down the road. I just paper towel off as much paint as I can if I am going to save them for much later. My other neat thing(I think) is I line my tray with foil or plastic wrap or a plastic bag, then I dont have to clean the tray either!!! When I am done painting I am tooo tired to mess with a mess! Thank you Steve and Woodbridge for validating me.Helpful Reply
