How will Rolla-wipa save paint?
Most paint roller cleaners simply scrape along the top of the nap, but the unique design of the Rolla-wipa works by pushing paint from the base of the nap and back into your tray where it can be reused instead of washed away down the drain. On a standard roller, this can mean up to 250ml of paint saved - and that’s money back in your pocket.
How will Rolla-wipa save me time?
Our specially designed paint roller cleaner covers more of the sleeve and removes 77%* of paint from the roller, meaning you will spend less time scraping and rinsing.

How will Rolla-wipa save me water?
Because the Rolla-wipa removes more paint from the roller sleeve, you reduce the amount of water needed in the final cleaning.
How will Rolla-wipa save me money?
No other paint roller cleaner offers savings like the Rolla-wipa. By pushing paint out of the sleeve and back into the tin, you’re no longer washing money down the drain, while also extending the life of your roller sleeves by eliminating the rough scraping that wears them out.
Why use a Rolla-wipa instead of a scraper or putty knife?
The straight edge of a putty knife or scraper only makes contact with a very small area of the roller sleeve and turns cleaning your paint roller into a slow and tiresome task. In contrast, the Rolla-wipa is specifically designed to fit the curved profile of a roller sleeve and allows you to clean it with just a few passes.
2. Caring for your roller sleeve and finish.
Using a regular paint roller scraper pulls fibres from the sleeve, causing it to degrade faster and the fibres to find their way onto your painting surface. Rolla-wipa’s curved design is gentle on roller sleeves and works with any pile length or material, improving the longevity of your sleeves and providing a cleaner finish to your painting.
3. Less mess.
Using a regular roller scraper often brings your hand close to the surface of the sleeve and leaves you covered in paint. With the Rolla-wipa, your hands stay clear of the sleeve and clean of paint, meaning less mess and less time wasted at the end of the day.
