Why You Should Vacuum Seal Your Wet Paint Brushes Before Storing Them
If you get interrupted in the middle of a paint job, a vacuum sealer can help you preserve your wet paintbrush so you don't have to clean it and start over.
Carefully bring your wet paintbrush over to your vacuum sealer, and using the machine, create a custom-sized bag that's sealed on one end and large enough to hold your brush.
Allow 3 inches on top of the bag to vacuum seal it closed. Store the baggy next to your paint can, and your brush will be supple and ready to go when you are.
The machine works by sucking all the air out and then heat sealing the bag, removing the oxygen that would otherwise cause the paint to harden and dry.
