The kid got a new electric toothbrush last month and I stuck the old one in my hobby desk and was considering converting it to a sander.

When out of the Blue Inspiration hit while I was trying to clean some paint bottles from a few projects back that had enamal paint turning to sludge in them.

After cleaning out the bottles as well as I could I filled them halfway with thinner and went at it cleaning the semi dried paint off the inside of the bottles..

The rotating head on the electric toothbrush worked great and made short work of the job.
