currently £34 in B&Q, was going to get someone in to decorate hall as is very high, I reckon I could probably reach though by leaning over the bannister in a precarious way grin,
So are they any good, because I really want to get my whole house painted at some point in the near future and it is definalty looking like a good option as I hate cleaning upo after, although I love the actual painting.

We have one, DH has used it and said that it doesn't make the painting any easier but the self cleaning at the end is good. So really I think you are paying the money for the machine to clean your roller for you - not sure it is worth it? Also, you can only use the pods of paint with it which work out more expensive than the usual tins of paint and only come in a limited range of colours.

New roller & tray - £2.50

Paintpod - £34

You can put a roller in washing machine - I've done this many times, comes out great (not if you're using oil based paint tho!)

Paintpod is a gimmick while will clutter up your house for years to come.

Hi Little Wee,
How do you wash the roller in the washing machine? On it's own, rinsed first? Glad you put me off the paint pod, was vaguely lusting after one today, but rather suspected it would be A N Other gadget. Bit like the cuprinol fence sprayer: worked once, now in shed.
