DIY Tip - Better Paint Storage. Make pouring & storing paint a breeze. Save your liquid laundry detergent jugs & wash them out. You won’t find a better way to store paint. No more rusty lids, paint splatters from tapping the lids closed, dried-out paint or runs down the side of the can when pouring. The spout works great for dispensing paint. Just fill the jugs using a funnel and label the container like you see on the picture .
