    Made by a Painter for Painters

    Fed up with spending hours cleaning roller sleeves for over 30 years as a professional painter, and worried about watching so much paint literally go down the drain, Brett Stanley knew there was a better way to clean up.

    Brett scoured retailers and trade shows for a roller cleaning tool but found nothing that impressed him. He imagined a simple tool that quickly removed and saved as much paint as possible from roller sleeves, as well as having the ability to solve other common painter problems.

    Brett set about designing and manufacturing his unique 3-in-1 painter's tool which effectively removes paint from roller sleeves, whilst acting as a handy paint tin opener and stirring stick that gets into the corners of the tin.

    I've been on the sharp end of a brush for 25 years. Yes, I used to use a five in one to do this, then a flexiblade. Now I use a Rolla-wipa every time. It's just better.
