The Paint Handy is a spill-proof paint caddy that takes the place of a paint cup or miniroller tray.
The plastic caddy has an absorbent liner that soaks up paint like a sponge and then releases it with the tap of a brush’s tip or a few strokes of a roller. The liner holds the paint in place, even when the caddy is turned upside down, the manufacturer says.
An adjustable strap holds the caddy to your hand. You can even turn the caddy so it’s resting on the back of your hand, freeing your grip so you can hold on securely as you climb a ladder.
The caddy will hold about a half-quart of paint at a time. A loaded caddy can be stored for a few days in a zippered plastic bag to keep the paint from drying out, and excess paint can be scraped back into the can when you’re done.
The Paint Handy sells for $37.99 at www.painthandy.com. Shipping is extra.
The product is also scheduled to be on QVC in early September.
