Stop paint from peeling off
When you open an empty bottle of paint, it’s likely to discover a layer of dried paint on the outside. It’s not just a hassle to clean up, but dry parts can get absorbed into the paint. It is possible to avoid this by using two methods when you shut a paint can. The first step is to place an aluminum foil piece under the can , and draw around the can. Cut the circle in half and then drop the aluminum foil disc onto the painted surface. After that, take a long breath, breathe into the can, and then quickly set the top on. The carbon dioxide you inhale through your breath helps to replace part of the oxygen inside the container, which keeps your paint from drying.
