Wooster Pelican: Are liners necessary?

I'm about to buy a Wooster Pelican. Wondering whether to buy liners.

The way I paint - do one coat of primer or paint on some trim, clean everything, come back the next day for another coat, repeat several times a week, I would be going through a lot of liners if I pitched them after one use. At $2 a piece for the liners, I'd probably be cleaning the liners.

Seems that if I were cleaning the liners I might as well just clean the bucket and forget the liners. Especially since I can't even buy the Pelican or the liners locally; I have to order from the web.

Anyone think the liners make your life that much easier that the expense is worth it?

If your going to use it the next day put it in a plastic bag seal it and use it the next day.

I don't like to buy liners either. Wrap it up like Toolseeker suggested. Or.......you can let it dry inside the "Pelican" and then peel out the dried up paint before each use. Sometimes I get really lazy and let 4 or 5 layers of paint build up before peeling it all out.

My son just painted the exterior of his house using one of these: "HANDy 4500-CC HANDy Ladder Pail " http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0010OIK02/..._26725410_item and he lined it with Glad Press'n Seal food/kitchen wrap. Came out clean as a whistle when he was done.

I've lined paint trays with it with success also.

Good luck!
