Trying to get paint to stick to a slick surface and not to your skin? Read on.
1. To avoid getting covered in paint, spray exposed skin with cooking spray. The paint should come right off-without scrubbing. This method is effective with latex or oil-based paints.
2. To neutralize the strong smell of any type of paint, add one tablespoon of vanilla extract (a natural deodorizer) per gallon. It won't affect the color of the paint.
4. To help paint stick to plastic surfaces, rub the surface with a used fabric-softener sheet.
