How to condition a new paint roller cover

How to condition a new paint roller cover

There are certain tools that work so well they’re unchanged for decades, and one of them is the simple paint roller. 

But you need to condition the paint roller to get a perfectly smooth coat of paint.

When you buy a brand-new roller sleeve and you first pull that out of the packaging and put it on your roller, most people just go and start rolling paint.

But if you look closely, when the roller sleeve comes right out of factory, it has loose pieces of lint. If you don’t condition it first and get rid of those little pieces of lint, they’ll end up on the wall when you paint.

So, all you need to do to condition a perfectly brand-new roller sleeve is get a spray bottle with some water on it. You just want to mist the entire roller sleeve and then spin it to remove the excess water.

Then get a clean piece of cardboard and roll on the sleeve like you’re applying paint; any excess water will come right off.

So now you got a perfectly conditioned roller ready to apply a smooth coat of paint!

 Watch the video for details.
