Simply grab an old sock and get to work.

Start by lightly sanding the stair handrail or handrail with a block or sandpaper.

First put on a pair of protective gloves, rubber gloves will do it.

These substances will prevent the paint from seeping through your socks into your skin.


Then, on top of them, layer a layer of socks on top to cover your hands.

Pour the paint of your choice into the tray so that any paint chips don’t stick to the tin paint.

Next, dip your hand with the sock in your paint and apply it to your stair handrail or railing.

The natural curve of your hand is perfect for reaching all the small parts and painting tubular railings quickly.

Apply a second coat with the same method after the first coat dries.

Before you know it, your entire staircase has been painted and all it needs is a sock.

Fans of the hack took the comments by storm, as one joked: “Looks like the paint was wiped off with a sock.”

Many people come up with their own ideas as one person said: “I use an old sharp packet and runway.”

While one wrote: “I wear mine with the dog and Vaseline.”

“I used a lawyer’s wig. Great coverage,” joked another silly commenter.

This commenter had a dangerous idea when they suggested: “I put on the toaster, much easier.”

While one asked: “Can I use the socks I wore today to work?”

“It takes forever to draw a bannister. A sock is faster than x20. So there it is,” one fan said.
