Green Toad Eco Green Paint Brush Paint System Review

Casa Beta: Green Toad Paint Brush

I've painted a lot of walls in my day, and almost inevitably I end up with sore arms and wrists. This wasn't the case this past weekend, when I finished a blackboard wall in my kitchen (more pictures of that project coming soon). The reason why? I credit my wrist comfort to the Green Toad Pivoting Paint Brush ($11).

I was recently sent a Green Toad paint brush to review, and I was pleasantly surprised by the ease of use I discovered with this new brush. It works by combining a comfort-grip handle with a 360-degree pivoting brush head. So, instead of rotating your wrist, you simply rotate the brush itself. I found it very easy to operate, and my biggest issue was remembering to actually use the tool instead of tweaking my hand and wrist in various uncomfortable positions.

Designed in consultation with physical therapists, the Green Toad paint brush also came in handy for painting trim work and difficult-to-reach areas. Since it comes with two different sizes of paintbrush heads, I found it to be all I needed for getting into tight corners, such as in the space between my cabinet, wall, and tile work.

The brush itself isn't any more expensive than a good paintbrush, and I'll definitely be using it again. It didn't shed bristles and was a snap to clean up with just water. I'm always looking for ways to make DIY projects easier, and the Green Toad paint brush definitely did just that.

Oh, and did I mention that the Green Toad is environmentally friendly? All plastics including the bristles have been treated with the company's patented Earthgreen polymer, which renders all plastic parts biodegradable and compostable.
