DIY fan reveals easy hack to avoid mess when painting your house

IF you’ve ever tried to paint a room in your home on your own, you know how messy it can get.

The paint can starts dripping, you get colors on the floor, and your clothes never stays clean.

A lifestyle and home expert named Katie Lynn, who goes by @simplykatielynn on TikTok, recently shared her advice for properly handling paint—it’s super easy and will save you from a total mess.

She called her tip: “The Paper Towel Hack.”

“When you’re pouring in your paint, you guys you have to do this if you haven’t,” she urged.

“So you’re gonna take your paper towel and you’re going to tuck it in your rim all around the paint can,” she said, while taking a thick piece and wrapping it along the edge of the tin jar.


I’m a lazy mom – I cut down on chores and get my kids to do the cleaning

She then began pouring the paint into a paint tray.

“And then when you’re done, you’re just going to take that paper towel that you tucked all around the rim.

“Lift it up and take it out so that your paint rim is still nice and clean, and you don’t have a huge mess on your hands.”

She said you could also use the paper towel to cover your paint once you’re done pouring, to protect it from dust and debris.
