- Can you re-use it? Storing leftover paint is easy as long as you keep the tins away from direct sunlight and in a frost-free environment. If you only have a small amount remaining, pour the leftover paint into old jam bottles.
Tip: Leftover whites? Mix them together and use as base coat next time you decorate.
2.Can someone else re-use it? Pass it on to neighbours or friends, or perhaps a local charity might find a use for it.
3.It’s important to remember that you can’t tip paint down the sink or your drains, or put it out with your normal rubbish.
