GOT LATEX PAINT?
You may also dispose of LATEX PAINT by following these steps:
Open the can and let the paint dry. You may add cat litter to speed up the process.
Once the paint is completely dry, you may dispose of it and the can with your regular household trash.
HOW MUCH PAINT DO YOU NEED?
1. Determine the total square feet of each area to be painted:
A. For each wall, multiply the height by the width:
Height ___ft. x width ___ft. = ____sq. ft.
B. For each ceiling, multiply the length by the width:
Length ___ft. x width ___ft. = ____sq. ft.
2. Add up the total sq. ft. for all walls and ceilings to be painted:
A + B = ____ total sq. ft.
3. To determine the number of gallons of paint needed for one coat,
divide the total sq. ft. by 400:
Total sq. ft. ____ / 400 = ____ gallons of paint
