Let's face it, painting can be a total mess. One new as seen on TV product is trying to change all that by offering the first ever spill-proof bucket. This gadget promises to keep the paint and the mess all in the pail. Spill Daddy is offering a cleaner way to conquer your painting jobs, with an easy and affordable option. It even has a man on the box that holds the product over his head full of paint! We needed to find someone that wouldn't mind possibly getting a bit dirty in our experiment, so we took it to Dennis Rosette from the Home Depot. "This could be very interesting. If it works, great! If it doesn't, it could be a real mess," said Rosette. Directions are pretty self-explanatory. You put in the plastic wrapper, pour in some paint, and pop on the lid. And the proof is in the pudding. "She is leaking!" said Rosette. Maybe if we just tilted it on its side? "OK, I see it leaking there a little bit," said Rosette. Even though the product was a fail, Dennis Rosette did see one silver lining. "Being able to scrape off extra paint to paint with, I could see where this would work really well," said Rosette. And because of that feature, he rates it: "A two and a half, because it doesn't do everything that it claims, but it would work well for painting in general," said Rosette. Now the rating is in, but there's still one more thing we've got to do! "I don't think I'll be putting this over my head, not today," said Rosette. We let him off the hook this time, from this not so spill-proof Spill Daddy.
