WHAT I HATE MOST ABOUT PAINTING
Whether you are painting a room or painting an entire house, the actual “chore” of painting has an upside and a downside. When you first begin, there’s the hassle of collecting all the right tools you need to do the job swiftly and efficiently. Do I have masking tape, tarps, brushes, rollers, the right color paint, paint for the trim, brush guards, rags, etc? Every time I turn around the cost of the supplies needed for a simple job keeps going up. Then comes the actual task of painting, which in and of itself, can be quite rewarding. Starting with the trim around the corners, walls and ceiling, and then filling in each wall with massive strokes of my handy roller with extension handle while seeing it all come together is actually quite exciting. And nothing compares to the rewarding feeling of accomplishment you get when the entire job is done.
I always feel proud when I finish painting a room…it’s my mini-mountain conquering feeling of achievement. But just like climbing a mountain, reaching the summit feels great, but then you face the arduous task of climbing down, or in this case, “cleaning your paint brushes and rollers.” It’s a defeating feeling, especially when you spend so much time trying to avoid getting paint on you while painting, and then getting splattered while hosing down your tools.
Alas, I came upon a miracle solution. It’s called Happy Brush Cleaner (you can find it at Amazon.com), and it’s the easiest, fastest and safest way I have ever found to clean latex paint off paint brushes and rollers. It’s very inexpensive, comes in quart bottle of concentrate that actually equates to five quarts of cleaning solution. It’s a biodegradable, soap-like product, that won’t harm the environment unlike most chemicals. All you have to do is slip your brush and roller in some of this soap and let it do the cleaning for you. The paint literally “runs off my brushes” after having sat in the solution for a while. Best of all, the brushes and rollers come out like new. I don’t have to buy new ones so I save and can finally use better equipment. If you want to finish your next paint job on a happy note, Hop on the web and pick up a bottle of Happy Brush Cleaner. You’ll be glad you did!
