  1. Open the can and let it air dry.
  2. Pour excess paint on cardboard or in a cardboard box filled with newspaper. Let the paint dry and then dispose of it in the trash.
  3. Mix an absorbent (like sawdust or kitty litter) with the paint.
  4. Let the paint dry and then dispose of it in the trash.
