HANDY PAINT ROLLER HANDLE HOLDER

We are always looking for ways to recycle household stuff and when I come across practical ideas I share them with you as often as I can. I found this one a pretty handy one, not only for using as a paper towel holder but also for holding tapes that you use on a regular basis in the workshop.

Anyone who does their own painting probably has one or two paint roller handles lying around and if the painting is done, now you can put the paint roller handles to good use.

 

 

CLEAN LIGHT FITTINGS WITH A PAINT ROLLER

Need to clean light fittings that are just out of reach? It's oh so easy if you use a paint roller. Cover the paint roller with a soft duster and secure it in place with a couple of elastic bands. Now you can easily reach light fittings to give them a regular cleaning. Keep this handy hack in mind for when you need to clean any light fittings that are just out of reach.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CLEAN A CEILLING FAN WITH A PAINT ROLLER

If you still have a paint roller left after re-painting your home, we found a couple of clever ways to use it other than for paint. You know how difficult it is to clean a ceiling fan, so why not wrap a paint roller with a disposable kitchen towel and use that to clean the fan blades. It easy if you have an extension handle or even a broom handle that you can fit into the paint roller - no more standing on your bed or a stepladder.
