Stop by the Boone County Public Works Office (5645 Idlewild Road, Burlington, KY 41005) for a free paint hardener packet. This paint hardener works for latex and acrylic paints, as well as stains. One packet will harden up to two-thirds of a gallon within 15 minutes. Once hardened and solidified, leave lid off and dispose in your curbside trash.
