Plastic Bags as Paint Preservers

We are all about organization and helping make people’s lives easier by sharing crafty uses of rubber bands.

We recently came across an article about creative uses for plastic grocery bags. We learned how a plastic bag and a rubber band can be used as a paintbrush and roller preserver.

All you need to do is place the brush or roller in a bag and tie it or wrap it with rubber bands to keep air out. Your brushes and rollers will stay moist and protected for a day or so.
