Tips on Tuesday



We've been painting again and we tried out a new product. It's called Paint Pourri, and is something you put into a gallon of paint to make your room smell nice. Bob has been selling it in his paint department for a while now and we wanted to try it ourselves. Our maintenance man at work has been using it whenever he paints a room and people often comment on how fresh it smells. The scent we got was Simply Clean and that's how it smells - fresh and clean. (I did hear from a friend that they tried this with tropical breeze scent and it was too strong.) There is no paint smell and it isn't a strong or overpowering. It costs $2.95 for one package which scents 1 gallon. Whenever I paint again (hopefully not too soon!) I will use it.

I wish we would have had this yesterday. My husband painted our bedroom with different paint then normal and one day later we still can't hardly be in the room. I will certainly remember this for next time.

Well, Mari, I'm going to get to paint eventually, and this is a timely tip for me. Thanks!

Did you ever get the color name for your kitchen/dining room paint from Bob?

Have a great week!

When we paint next, we gotta get some of that!!! Oooo it makes me excited to paint just thinking about it~

Thank-you for letting me know about it!

Is that what we used when we painted for Dad?

That is the same stuff we used with dad's house too. I've used it since too and liked it.

With having inherited two houses in less then a year...we have painted ourselves silly. I've painted everything except my toe nails! I could have used some nice fragrance during all this work!

Mari,

This tip was just in time. I want to paint the kitchen before Christmas and will check to see if this is available in Canada. It sounds terrific.

Blessings,
Mary
