project paint roller scraper

if you ever painted with a roller, you'll know how much of a pain cleaning it can be, especially when it's still soaked with the paint itself. feeling yellow?, no worries, why not try to scrap all that excess paint off with something commonly found while you're painting (or in your home)!
scraping it down
unravel the metal paint bucket handle (or use a metal coat hanger), and bend it to the shape shown. start from the top of the roller, and scrape downwards into the bucket, lightly squeezing your way down. enjoy the bead of paint oooozing out.

small, free, and you can make about 2 of them with one coat hanger!
add it to your painting kit!

Need to develop an automatic rinsing unit that envelopes the roller with flowing water. Add a timer to set-it and forget-it. For the spin cycle: consider attaching the roller to a drill. But as I've learned from experience-do this OUTSIDE.

In Ohio, we just use our hands. But that's a land where men are men.
