Before cleaning, no matter what kind of paint you have, you have to remove the excess paint from the paint rollers first. You can squeeze the excess paint into the paint bucket or use a rubber scraper to scrape off the excess paint. Doing this will ease the burden of cleaning your paint rollers. If you are using oil-based paint, you will need to soak the paint rollers in thinner for at least 2 or 3 hours first. Then rinse the painting tools again under running water until they become clean. Mineral spirits, denatured alcohols and paint thinners can all be used to thin oil-based paints. If your paint is latex paint, you can simply rinse painting tools. under running warm water. No matter what type of paint you are using, you can gently rub the bristles of the paint rollers with your hands during the rinsing process if necessary to avoid clumping of the painting tools.. after the paint rollers have been cleaned, you will want to shake out any excess water from the paint rollers, you can absorb the water with a dry cloth. Finally, leave the paint rollers to dry in a ventilated area.

For paint rollers with long bristles, you need to fluff the bristles when storing them, otherwise the long bristles may get tangled with each other and affect the painting effect. Kraft paper and plastic bags are both good options for storing paint rollers. For kraft paper, choose a size that is slightly wider than the sleeve of the wall brushes. If you choose to use a plastic bag, you can make a hole in the bag to prevent mould. paint rollers should also be stored in an upright position to avoid indentations in the lint. If possible, you can store the wrapped paint rollers in the fridge.
