Answer: 
Another great, one-time investment to keep brushes and roller covers like new is a Brush & Roller Spinner. SKU 116-295. Use it prep or help clean an applicator after painting.

Answer: 
If you have a laundry sink, continually rinse the roller until the water runs clean then give it a few spins to fluff it up again. Yes, you fling water everywhere by doing this, so that's why it's best to do it in a laundry tub or outside. I have heard of some people fluffing them in a dryer but i wouldn't recommend it.

Lacy,
I have two ways of cleaning the roller cover.
1. If the weather is warm, I take the roller outside and turn on the hose, adjust the nozzle to a stream, hold the roller down in the bucket and spray the roller cover so that it spins and it throws the paint and water off and after several times of this it is clean. I set it aside to dry.

Lacy,
I have two ways of cleaning the roller cover.
1. If the weather is warm, I take the roller outside and turn on the hose, adjust the nozzle to a stream, hold the roller down in the bucket and spray the roller cover so that it spins and it throws the paint and water off and after several times of this it is clean. I set it aside to dry.
2. In side I run the roller cover under warm water and use a grease breaking detergent to wash up and down on the cover to get all of the paint out. I wash it over and over till no paint comes out of the roller when run under clean water. I set it aside to dry.
3. If I am going to use the same roller over the next day, I get a quart size zip seal bag and place the cover inside and burp it so I have most of the air out and seal it up so The air is out and it will be ok to use the next day.
Hope this helps you. I use mine 4 or 5 times after washing them out. Great tool. Read Less

Answer: 
I don't think there is a good way, or one that isn't messy. I usually use the roller twice, first coat, put the roller in a zip lock bag, second coat and throw it away. With the high cost of paint and the low cost of rollers and time; it doesn't pay to try and wash them out. Just my opinion..

Answer: 
I've heard of 'spinning it rather fast, using a drill, while holding in a bucket and rinsing it with water, but I can tell you that you'll use a lot of water and still never get all the paint out. It's better to get another roller.
If you are just stopping your painting for a bit, you can wrap the roller in plastic wrap. That will keep the paint and roller wet for when you are ready again.

Answer: 
I have never had success cleaning and then reusing rollers. But, if you want to stop painting and take a break for several hours or a day and then use then reuse the roller, then try these tricks. Place wet roller in gallon sized zip lock bag or a tube from pringles or lays type chips and reseal. The roller will stay moist and be ready for reuse later.

The best way to clean and store a roller cover is to first paint out the excess paint. Next (assuming latex paint) rinse the cover under luke-warm water (not hot) and rinse out most of the paint.

Then work a small amount of liquid dishwashing detergent thru the fabric and rinse thoroughly. For the final step, it is best to use a Brush & Roller Spinner. Slide the roller over the end of the spinner and use the plunger/crank to spin out all excess moisture inside an empty 5 gallon bucket. This will remove the moisture and fluff the fabric back up. Once it's dry, you can store the roller cover back in the original plastic bag. The Spinner can also be used to prep or clean brushes to ensure their long-term durability. Read Less

Answer: 
I'm not sure I understand your question. Is it sliding on the roller holder? If so, it may be the roller holder. I didn't experience any sliding when I used it. I put it on a standard roller holder.
If you mean the microfiber cover slid on the roller itself, I can't tell you why that happened to you. Again, I didn't experience any sliding.
Sorry, I can't be more helpful.

Answer: 
There are a couple things that could be causing this to happen, but the most probably would be a roller frame that is sticking or catching instead of rotating freely. That could be caused by a faulty frame or a frame that has some dried paint or debris causing friction. As long as the paint is a decent quality, it should be interfering with the performance of the roller cover. I hope this helps. Thanks,

Answer: 
This would not be recommended. The biggest problem with using rollers for floor finishes is that they tend to cause bubbles in the finish. A better option would be a flocked foam pad like SKU 469-968. Pads tend to spread the floor finish more smoothly and evenly. Refills are available as well. Thanks,

Best 9 in. x 3/8 in. Microfiber Roller Cover (3-Pack) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from "Best" Micro Fiber Roller I bought two 3 packs, returned one pack. The roller fibers came off in the paint, now I have a wall with cloth fibers in the paint. Had to waste my time going back, standing in line for a refund and then getting new rollers, Wooster, they were very good. I will make it a point to not buy any "Best" products.

Be careful using these rollers, you can get way too much paint on your walls. When you apply with this roller it looks a bit bumpy (used and enamel paint) but it dried quite smooth. I give it 4 stars because it does keep so much pain in these very thick rollers so if you are attempting to apply a thin coat, use caution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had discovered them earlier I started with the best rollers for a bedroom I was repainting. With the best rollers I used the expected amount of paint (3/4 of a gallon) for the first coat. It went on well but it took a long time. For the second coat I went to the store and was recommended these rollers. Wow what a difference. The second coat went on much easier, and we only used maybe a 1/4 of the second gallon. The roller were even, smooth, and held paint so well. My daughter and I were so impressed. We decided the do the second room the same evening as well. That one went even better. For a 350 sq foot of walls we should have needed about 1 & 3/4 gallons. Using the microfiber best brushes for both coats we used just over 1 gallon. The first set of brushes I washed and they cleaned easy and are still in great condition. I let them soaking in cold water overnight since after painting 2 rooms I was too tired to clean them. Little laundry soap and a little scrubbing they look good as new. The second set I just threw away since after applying 2 coats one right after the other they were trashed. I didn't have any shedding problems like I did with the better brushes. I will never go back to any other kind of brush. We are not professionals, but with these rollers you sure couldn't tell. We have more rooms to paint. These were the most wonderful find. I recommend changing brushes between coats if you want to save your rollers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad experience with microfiber roller pads The microfibers on this roller pad started to separate from the pad onto my walls. and unfortunately onto my cathedral ceiling. As I applied with a extension rod I could not remove these pieces.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sheds on the wall. Used for approximately 15 minutes. Roller kept shedding on the wall. Had to keep wiping wall clean. Threw away the remaing 2 from the 3 pack.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for latex Im a professional painter. While the fabric material for these rollers wotk very well for the small 3 inch detail "hot dog" rollers, they are not effective for finish work. The problem is that the material applies then "flocks " the product back off the wall. this means coverage is very poor, especially if you are going with a drastic color change. The best roller for interior walls are the snow-white soft fine knap rollers (Purdys are a good exmaple). these rollers are great for wood staining large areas or polyurethane work but NOT for interior latex paint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High Quality Paint Roller Cover I've done a lot of painting, but I've never seen a roller cover like this. The microfiber is very soft and seemed to be completely lint free. The cover is well crafted with a plastic core and tapered edges. My cover was rated for "smooth to semi smooth surfaces," and my application was on a smooth surface. The paint application was even, but it was a bit textured due to the nap of the microfiber, so I gave it an overall rating of four stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst rollers ever Leaves tons of fibers in your paint. I got about 2 square feet painted and had to pick 20+ clumps of fibers out. Won't be using these again even if they paid me to.
