Savvy finishing solutions


Solution to stuck lids is in the bag

Solution to stuck lids is in the bag

Screw-top cans keep oil finishes fresh, but removing the cap is usually a struggle after the can sits for awhile. I avoid this problem by laying a plastic shopping bag over the can spout before I screw on the lid. After I tighten the lid, I trim away the excess plastic. The lid screws on tightly over the two layers of thin plastic and twists off easily later.
