Can you retint paint at Lowe's?

I've been at Lowe's for over two years, and I spent a year in the paint department. You can return the can as long as it is unopened. Tinted paint, in general, cannot be returned. However, if the can has a natural color inside then it can be returned.

They will not give you your money back if you open the can though. So don't do that!

The best thing to do is call your local store and explain the situation. They will most likely let you out of your purchase without arguing with you. Just make sure that this was not done automatically when you rang up your purchase.

If they won't refund your money, then don't buy from them again. There are many other stores that will take returns of opened cans of paint.

Retailers will usually allow returns within a certain time period after you have made your purchase. Check your warranty card or sales receipt to see when your product ended its shelf life and then ask for a return label. Also check with your state office for retail laws; some states require returns on unopened products to be accepted within a specified time frame (usually within 90 days). For example, in New York City, you must return products to any Macy's or Bloomingdale's store within 90 days of purchase.

What happens if you leave the lid off of a paint can?

Even if you've used all of the paint in a can, always let the empty containers dry completely with the lid off before throwing them away. If there is still any paint in the container, you can let it dry in a well-ventilated place until it hardens, stirring it once every few days. When the can no longer swells when you touch it to the brim, it's time to discard it.

If you leave the lid on too long, however, the can will eventually explode.

The gas that explodes the can comes from the solvent in the paint evaporating. There's actually more gas than liquid, so as the solvent evaporates, there's less pressure inside the can and it will expand quickly if the cap isn't tight enough. This can cause serious injury or death if it occurs in an enclosed space.

People have been known to explode their cans after each use for decorative purposes. In fact, there are holiday themes based on this practice: Valentines Day and Easter are both examples of times where people leave the lids off of paint cans and decorate their homes with them. However, this should be done carefully because even though it may look cool, it could be hazardous if someone else decides to enjoy the spectacle while you're out.

Also remember that children are curious and will often grab at anything they find lying around the house.
