WFMW - Disposing of Paints & Other Stuff

Super Short W4MW today - but I wanted to share the following with you...

You know how you'll paint a room and then you'll have paint left? Well if you're like keep that old paint for various touch ups over time. But how do you safely dispose of the paint once your ready to change colors?

You can just pour the liquid into a plastic container of scoopable kitty litter to dispose of it. Problem solved. The litter absorbs the liquid and hardens. This is a much better option that pouring it down your drain.

Of course, we keep a container of kitty litter in our garage for any spills - oil, paint, etc. It makes the clean up so much easier!

Head over to Rocks In My Dryer for other W4MW tips!

Good idea! I save old paint colors for the girl to use in her room. She changes her mind so often that it's four different colors right now. :)
