How to clean a Paint Roller

5/5 - (3 votes)

Way back in 1998 I was remodeling two bathrooms in the middle of nowhere with a paint supply place even further away. So it was important that I clean the rollers very well. The only place to clean them was outside with a hose.

Once I started spraying the roller it started to spin and spin fast. That’s when I discovered by holding the water stream just on the outside edge of the roller made it spin while getting it clean at the same time. And to my surprise, it was virtually dry.

So let those days of cleaning paint rollers in the sink be a thing of the past.
