Ever tried prying open a can of used paint that is stuck fast with dried paint?
Remember to seal your can of paint using this handy trick and the lid will come off easily next time you need it.
Clean off any excess pain around the rim of the can. Stretch a piece of plastic food wrap over the top of the open can. Position the lid on top of the can and the wrap and gently tap it all the way round with a rubber mallet until you have a good seal. Don’t kill it with a hammer or you will damage the lid.
Thanks to the plastic wrap, the next time you need the paint, the lid should pop right off.
