    Couldn'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.

    Thank 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.
