Paint brush storage in Blackpool has been a plague upon painting contractors and DIYers forever. In fact, everything to do with putting fresh paint on interior and exterior surfaces has always had people looking for a better way. Oil based paint, stain and varnish was once the tools of interior decorators. Jars of turpentine and linseed oil with paint brushes soaking inside lined the basement shelf in hopes the brushes would self-clean alone there in the dark. Paint splattered clothing was stored away until the next paint job because the paint never came out of fabric or anything else. Paper hats made from newspaper were used to protect hair from the paint drips. The wobbly wood ladder was decorated with reminders from generations of painting projects. Many a bucket of paint tumbled from the top step.
One by one, many of those problems have been solved with dripless water based paint, ladders with wide tops to secure paint trays, and all of it easily cleaned up with warm sudsy water. In Blackpool, paint brush storage meant leaving the brushes out to dry after washing with water. But that didn’t really solve the problems of paint brush cleaning. There were always bits of paint left behind even though we scrubbed so hard the brush bristles looked like split ends. Then there was the rust streaks. Then of course, not everything could be painted with water based paint. So until recently, the worst part of the job, which is cleaning the brushes, still was not resolved.
