Use Butyl Drop Cloth For Superior Leak Resistance

Uncoated natural cotton canvas drop cloth has superior absorbency. However, even the heaviest canvas drop cloth is not leak proof. Inexperienced DIY painters are much more prone to paint spills and splashes. To prevent damages from paint spills or splashes, please consider using a butyl drop cloth or heavy duty butyl drop cloth, since they are much more leak resistant. A good quality butyl drop cloth can be reused and can save money over time. For leak resistance, a painter can also use a heavy duty tarp, such as heavy duty brown silver heavy duty tarp or white heavy duty tarp.

Canvas Drop Cloth - Professional Painters' #1 Choice

Canvas drop cloth is popular with professional painters because canvas drop cloths are more pliable and more versatile. Canvas drop cloth can be reused and painters save money over a long time.

Warning: WARNING: Canvas Drop Cloth is NOT Leak Proof
