if you out anything with paint - roller, brush, stirrer, piece of wood - on this, the absorbent layer sticks to it instantly and wont come off. just get a plastic tarp. this is the absolute worst product I have ever used.Anything you out on this, brush roller, stirrer, wood, will end up with patches of the absorbent layer stuck all over it. Trust me, just get a plastic tarp.
Buy these with the clear understanding that they are thin and lightweight, which means they will blow around in any wind so don't plan on using them outside unless you weight them down at many points. That said, being lightweight also means they are easy to move around and they will stop paint that drops on them so they are better suited for indoor projects. They are reasonably strong for the price but not indestructible. Yes I would buy them again.
