Help! light paint on DH's new black coat!

Recommended Posts

Dawn dishwashing detergent. Rub it in the stain and rinse and repeat until it all comes out (I've even let it sit for a bit before rinsing).


I've used it to get dried paint out of clothing more than once.


It has to be Dawn, though. And I believe you can follow the Dawn up with ammonia, but I've never had to do that part so google (it's how I found out about the Dawn).

I had good luck with regular laundry soap and elbow grease when my dd leaned against a freshly painted white wall in a brand new corduroy dress. I just wet the spots, coated with soap and scrubbed it with a stiff bristled toothbrush (as well as scraping at the spots with my fingernail). I took a few washings but it all came out.
