Paint roller tip
When you are painting walls with latex paint and are between coats you don't have to wash out your paint roller. Instead, wrap your roller in a couple of plastic grocery bags, twist the bags around the roller handle and put it in your fridge. This prevents the paint from drying out and allows you to resume the job later. I don't know what the time limit is for leaving a roller in the fridge before you would need to wash it out but I've left one for a couple of days and not had a problem. It works for me!

I've had good results doing almost the same thing, but skipped the last step (didn't refrigerate). Just wrapped roller in plastic grocery bags and left it in the garage. Worked great! thanX for sharing
