Pails are handy and practical additions to your home improvement tools. Whether you’re mopping floors, painting walls or washing cars, you’ll want a pail on hand. There are a variety of pail sizes and shapes to choose from, depending on your needs. A sturdy 19L utility bucket is great for storing and transporting everything from tools to topsoil. A small galvanized metal pail is a portable option for cleaning and won’t absorb odours like a plastic bucket. You can even use galvanized metal buckets to add rustic decor to gardens or events. Mopping up a mess? Grab a water pail so you can rinse your mop without having to run back to the sink every few minutes.
Whatever type or size you use, look for convenient features like a handle with a grip to comfortably lift and move your bucket, especially when it’s full. Some buckets will come with a spout, which makes it easier for pouring out liquids. A pail with a lid is another practical option that will provide secure storage and prevent items such as paint or soil from drying out.
