Paint: Trash

When our paint usually gets dry, we tend to throw it away. This can be harmful to the environment, as many types of paint are toxic. Try this idea when trying to use up old paint.


  1. Old paint
  2. Paint brush


  1. Using your paint brush, gently mix together the contents of the paint.
  2. Then, power mix the paint for 5-10 minutes; slowly at first, then faster.

*Still not working? Add some water if it's latex paint, and a paint-thinner for oil based paint.
