Any new painting project can be extremely messy. While pouring paint from the can, the liquid might drip along the sides, creating an even bigger cleanup project.
The next time you pour paint from the can, use painter’s tape to make this task less messy.
In a clever TikTok video, user @goodlyearth demonstrated how to use this simple trick. He applied two pieces of painter’s tape to the rim of the can in a v-shape. This method creates a funnel, making it easier to pour the paint.

Apply painter's tape for any hack with your messy DIY projects.
The video also suggests applying plastic wrap to the top of the can to prevent the lid from sticking. When you’re ready to use the can of paint again, the lid will pop right off, and the rim will be as good as new.
It’s no surprise that painter’s tape makes for a clever DIY hack. But while working on your painting project, you might also try a common pantry staple that can save your dried paint brushes.
