Tips & Tricks: Finish Flip Seal

Partially used cans of finish can be hard to seal properly, causing the finish to go bad. A good way to prevent this is to wipe the lid contact areas clean, tap the lid down well, and then flip the can upside-down for storage. This way, the finish itself will form an airtight seal around the rim.
