Title your finishing cans.
If you're like me, you have 10 years' worth of rectangular solvent and finish cans on your shelf, and it's hard to grab the mineral spirits can without first pulling out the acetone, the walnut stain and the denatured alcohol cans. Try this great solution. Set all the cans side by side and spray them with white appliance paint. When the paint's dry, write the names with a permanent marker or paint pen on the painted spines like a book title. Now you'll instantly nab the can you need and say thanks to Bruce Ristow for such a speedy read.
