And you must use one of these for bathrooms or other small rooms requiring only a gallon?


Ahhh, what a cute little roller set up


Rag and bag (wet rag, grocery bag) works well for me for short-medium term brush and/or pot storage. The only drawback is the rag drips water for a while. Would be nice to have something that would keep a deuce rig fresh without the moisture.

Now, if someone can invent a temporary lid for a five and a duece that still has a roller frame and grid in the bucket, (without having to submerge the roller) that might be another useful tool. I know they make one for roller pans, but pans are for DIY'ers...Bring it!
Ahh. Bucket vs tray debate. You are still wrong CA.

Cheap, works great. try a product called Cling wrap on those buckets. I can cover a paint tray with it and the paint will keep for days without drying out. Crap, i'm trying to sell paint! Why am I telling you guys that?

Was - mart bags. You already have 200 stored away anyways. Who here is guilty of hoarding those or has a wife guilty of it?

Either I use those for rollers/brushes or they take over my house hehe

5 gallon bucket lid with a little hacksaw alteration.
Works with a roller setup or under a pump.

Won't help with roller trays, but that's DIY stuff anyway. Lol.

I use a roll of 24" masking plastic and tape. Seems like the plastic covers are just another thing to clean.

Me too.
I use Husky 12' X 400' .31mil plastic. If you cut it into 1' squares you can wrap 4800 brushes for about $18.00 bucks

If y'all would like, tomorrow I can take a few pics of how I cover deuce's, 5's, rollers, and brushes

Personally, I don't understand the notion of BUYING (or making) a BAG to keep bags in.

My mother was actually selling them at the local farmers markets. The amish ladies loved them.

I just looked at these brush covers on the webpage. They offer a 3-pack for $8.95 and a "Pro edition" for $12.99 (that is sold out at the moment). The product description for each type of 3-pack is identical. So...what differentiates a "Pro edition" from the other pack? I'm cornfused...

I probably will take the plunge and order a set to test them out.

From what I read there doesn't seem to be any advantage (or difference in quality) by purchasing the "pro" version anyway.

Default Goose neck plastic form and magnet brush holder.

Just wanted to mention that my goose necks (the wire inside) became useless.. so I used them for exterior oil HAHAHA BYE BYE 15 bucks each ..... BUT I now use the hard plastic wrap to protect my 2.5 and 3 inch brush .. GREAT recycling!!! and I use magnet clips on the edge of my cut can - paint tray - 5r and the brush bristles hang freely into clean water untill next use. I also cut 2 notches opposite each other on a 5r and use the wire handle to bridge the gap then I slide the hole on the brush handle and the brush can hang in my 5r filled with clean water ( room temp NOT hot water or cold and make sure its in a place where temp wont damage your bristles - like outside on freeze over. BUT I'll of coarse take a look at this product and give it MY DUE attention , however long that might be!
