Step 1

Gather together all of your wet paint brushes and wet paint rollers when you are finished for the day.

Step 2

Put each paint brush and roller in a plastic bag. Sandwich bags are fine, used plastic grocery bags work too..

Step 3

Seal the bags tight. Twist ties work well for this, but bits of string or yarn work just as well. Tie the plastic tight around the handles. When you are ready to paint the next day, the brushes and rollers will still be wet with paint and ready to go.
