Painting tips to help you become a painting phenom

    If you have ever painted your house or anything before, you may notice that the paint comes of the roller and onto your arm. This paint makes for a mess that sticks directly to your arm. Depending on the paint it can be a huge pain to get the paint off. However in my first DIY installment I will tell you the secret to never having the paint stick to you again.

    Ok here it is, all you need to do is take a spray bottle of Pam (vegetable oil stuff) and spray it on your arms, or wherever you don't want the paint to stick! That's it. You see the oil makes it so the paint can't stick to your body and thus leaving you paint free.

    If you have happened to get paint on yourself here are some easy tips on how to remove it. All you need to do is rub on a little bit of butter or margarine on the area, and this will help peel the paint right off. The oils in the butter or margarine make it difficult for the paint to adhere to the surface, making it easy to clean the area. This technique is useful as almost everyone has butter or margarine on hand. A bit more scrubbing with soap and water will be needed to remove the margarine, as well as any remaining bits of paint stuck to hair.

    This has been another tip, make sure you check out my other articles for helpful DIY tips.
