We made a bet: You said OxiClean would remove old acrylic stains. I said it would not. You won. I lost.
It's inevitable. Every article of clothing and accessory I own is bound to end up with an acrylic paint stain.
If I notice the stain when it's still fresh, out comes the spray bottle to get it soaking wet. Water is by far the best acrylic paint remover. Once an acrylic stain is dry however, it's on there for good. Or so I thought.
Last week I learned that soaking your clothes in OxiClean (my clothes were left soaking in an OxiClean bath for over 24 hrs) does indeed manage to get out 90% of the stain. Mind you there is lots of scrubbing involved.
Another product I love, love, love is Winsor Newton's Brush Cleaner & Restorer. The label said it would actually take paint off of dry brushes. So naturally, I tried it. It worked. I have also used this product to remove dry acrylic stains from my clothes, leather purses, countertops, walls and carpet. I'm afraid to say the carpet stain did not budge.
1000+ Stain Remover worked great to clean the paint splatters off of my deck.
Goo Gone Wipes are perfect for wiping paint off of your walls. But be careful you don't scrub so hard that it takes off the wall paint off as well.
What is your favorite acrylic paint remover? Please share!
