The most popular options are the quick-and-easy triple fold, or folding the outer edges towards the centre before folding in thirds, to create a plusher, more spa-like look. But what do you do? And who knew folding towels could be so controversial?

Painting tips : Bag the sleeve

Adam from Adam's Painting

When you've finished painting the walls or ceilings with a roller, you may not need to wash the roller sleeve out, especially if you're coming back to use it again for the next coat!

A simple trick that stops the roller sleeve from drying out overnight is to wrap it in a plastic bag. Make sure the sleeve is completely wrapped with no parts exposed to the air. You don't need to put it in the fridge, just leave it well wrapped in a safe place. These days, getting hold of a plastic bag can be a challenge. I find a used bread bag can be ideal. Make sure it has no crumbs in it and wrap the roller sleeve so any advertising on the bag is on the outside, not touching the sleeve (or the bread bag advertising could adhere to the wet roller sleeve). If that all sounds a bit complicated, feel free to contact me for a painting estimate around your home or business!
