Picture of Lump free paint (pinte sin grumos)
A way of NOT contribute to global heating is reusing inputs, example paint.

Step 1: Although sometimes the paint gets lumpy when it gets old (hace grumos con el tiempo)

In the picture you can see the lumps on the surface of the paint.

(En la foto se ven los grumos en la superficie de la pintura)

Step 2: But it is not necessary to throw it to the garbage, it is still possible to use it.

The women ALWAYS have some stocking with holes. Those stockings are exactly what we need.

(Las mujeres SIEMPRE tienen algunas medias con agujeros. Eso es exactamente lo que necesitamos).

Step 3: Let us put a stocking (the part without holes) on the mouth of the can.

It should not be too tight. The paintbrush should be able to submerge in the paint.

(Pongamos una media -la parte sin agujeros- sobre la boca de la lata. No debería estar muy ajustada. El pincel debería ser capaz de hundirse en la pintura)

Can't wait to show this to my husband! He uses pantyhose to strain paint, but this is so much less mess than pouring through. Thanks for sharing your idea!

Brilliant! Like CatMan, I've always poured into another container. I'm definitely going to try your way. Thanks for posting it!

If you put the lid on tight and store your paint (oil based) upside down. The skin and lumps from at the top - this will be at the bottom when you turn the tin over to use it.

Yes, it is, but years ago I found a can of paint, upside down, whose lid was "jumped" and then the paint have been spilled. Fortunately it was a little, but it did a mess.

Now that is one good idea! I have lots of old paint, now I can use it!

hey, you are very good with paint! i like that method, i always thought you had to pour the paint through the sock, to another can. the way you do it saves work and an extra can. probably saves paint too. good work! ("...The paintbrush should can diving in the painting." should be- "...the paintbrush should be able to submerge in the paint.") :-)

Thank you. I already made the correction. With your help and that of other users of Instructables, I will finish learning English. Outside of topic: why don't I see this instructable when I request them ordered by date? It is a good question for the staff of
