Final Rubbermaid Paint Buddy Review
We are going to give the Rubbermaid Paint Buddy a Try/Buy rating. There are a few problems and one may be that it is now hard to get. Also it is pretty pricey but there may be some alternatives. As with any products there are always a few generic ones that end up on the market. There is a version of this type of product called the Touch Up Painter which sells for a whole lot less on Amazon. It only has a few ratings however so these really can’t be relied on for feedback as yet.
What it comes down to is convenience and are you prepared to pay a price such as this for being able to easily store your paint and then be able to apply it from the same product? If you don’t mind the clean up that it takes using the standard method of touch ups, then you really can store your left over paint for this purpose in any air tight container. Painting jobs are usually big jobs and having any tools that will help you get the job done easier is a bonus. One that we think may help is one that we reviewed in the past called Rapid Edge.
