How to paint a ceiling with a roller and stay clean.

Use the roller on the end of an extension pole. Carefully load the roller sleeve with paint. Place one hand at the end of the pole, the other hand about 18" - 2 feet further up. Start in the furthest corner, standing with your feet apart. Roll left to right above your head, NEVER front to back.
