Methods to Removing the Paint off Clothes in 2023

While I was worried, my friends tell me the two working methods to remove the paint off. I have shared both methods with you. 

Removing the water-based Paints 

Most of the household emulsion is based on water based gloss paints, which is amazed. The paint can be more easily removed from clothes when painted with water-based instead of oil-based paint. Yet, you need to follow the below instructions if your paint stains got water-based paint.

  • Firstly, scrape the paint off with the spoon, knife or any scraping tool. However, sometimes, the paint will rinse by just doing the scraping.
  • Secondly, rinse the warm water into a place where you see the paint stain on your clothes.
  • Reverse the method above after rinsing the garment in warm water and turning it inside out. 
  • Putting the water will help you out to push the pigments gently.
  • If still, paint won’t leave the place. Mix one tablespoon of laundry detergent into a cup of cool water and wash the paint stain area with this liquid.

The paint stains will be getting off from the clothes once you apply the above method because the water-based paint colors are the easiest way to paint and get off.

Removing the Oil-Based Paints

If the paint you are using is glossy oil based paint, it may be tricky to remove the stains. As I mentioned above the oil-based paints are tricky to remove. But don’t worry, I will tell you the proper method to rinse off. 

Also, this method is my favorite because I also got the paint stain from oil-based paint, and I applied the same below method.

  • Like the water-based paints, firstly scrapped the paint with the scrapping tool.
  •  To prevent the oils and washing chemicals from spilling through the contrary direction, turn the clothing inside out and place paper towels against the stain.
  • Use paint thinner and apply it in the position (as tested). Because sometimes the paint thinner may damage the clothes.
  • Once you checked, if the paint thinner will not damage your clothes, then use it to paint stains and rub them to removing the paint stains. 
  •  If the paint thinner does not remove the paint, you can also use the nail polish remover with the same method. 

The paint will be rinsed off by following the above method. However, the most stubborn paint will also remove with the paint thinner.
