Step 4 — CLEAN

When you are finished painting, wait until your surfaces are dry to the touch. Then, you can:

  • Remove the painters tape carefully.
  • Make sure to rinse your brushes and roller with water before they dry out. The residual water can be disposed of in the sink. If you want to be extra considerate about disposal, collect any water used for cleaning in a container and leave it out to dry in the sun. After the water evaporates, it will leave behind a thin layer of dried out paint which can be disposed of as plastic via your local waste-sorting facility. 
  • The cardboard box can be sorted as cardboard. And the inner plastic bag and its cap can be sorted as plastic. Both can be disposed of at your local waste-sorting facility.  

If properly closed and stored at room temperature, Blēo paint can be used for up to two years after purchase.
