Today’s Tip: Recycle sheets for dropcloths

When we're painting I use old bed sheets and lightweight blankets for dropcloths inside the house to protect furniture and outside to cover the shrubbery when we're painting the siding or trim. They're lightweight and easy to store and if it's windy outside I weigh down the corners with a brick or rock.
