A MAN has been praised after sharing a genius hack to make fence painting a whole lot easier.
While most people use brushes to paint the panels, he insisted it’s much more effective to use a sponge instead.
He demonstrated by showing how a brush distributed the paint, before doing the same thing with a sponge.
And it was the latter that meant he could finish the job much faster than if he’d been using a brush.
“Fence painters out there – use a sponge NOT a brush! You can thank me later,” he captioned the tiktok.com/@reno_at_95/video/7252967659724098843″ aria-label=”video (opens in a new tab)”>video on his TikTok page.
People were quick to comment on the clever hack, with one writing: “GEE WIZZ THIS IS INCREDIBLE”.
“Mind officially blown! That’s a game changer,” another added.
“Thank you so much,” a third said.
While someone else admitted: “Literally spent 2 hours painting a fence yesterday. Wish I’d seen this.”
“Gonna try this on the cabin,” another said.
“I use a decorators sponge – 17m fence painted in less than 1 hour both sides,” someone else boasted.
But others insisted the man was missing a trick by not using a sprayer to paint his fence.
“Sponge is a half decent way, better than a brush, but a spray gun wins all day long,” one wrote.
“I did a 35ft fence in less than 2 hours, with 2 coats.”
“Just spray it, 10 times quicker,” another added.
“Cheap sprayer £36 from screwfix,” a third commented.
“1 square meter done every 20 seconds with 100% coverage.
“You’ll use far less paint as well.”
However, that method didn’t work too well for one person, who commented: “I’m not an expert, but I used a sprayer one time doing this.
“It went through the cracks and left paint marks on my neighbour’s side of the fence.”
