How to Get Acrylic Paint Out of Clothes
Acrylic paint can be a nightmare to remove from clothing if you weren’t buckled up with an apron, but don’t worry! There are several methods you can take to help get the paint out.
Things You Will Need:
- Rubbing alcohol
- A sponge
- A cleaning cloth
- Baking soda
- Laundry detergent
- White vinegar
The first thing you should do is check the care instructions of your clothing. Different fabrics require different treatment methods, so it’s important to check this first.
Method 1: Rubbing Alcohol and Sponge
If the paint is still wet, you can start by using a sponge and rubbing alcohol. Dab the paint with a sponge that has been dipped in rubbing alcohol and then blot the area with a clean cloth. Repeat this process until the paint is removed.
Method 2: Baking Soda
If the paint has already dried and set, you can try a paste made from baking soda. Start by making a paste of baking soda and water, and then rub the paste on the affected area. Wait for the paste to dry, then brush it off with a cloth.
Method 3: Laundry Detergent
If the above methods don’t work, then you can try using some laundry detergent. Dilute the detergent with water and then rub it into the clothes. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse it off.
Method 4: White Vinegar
If the above methods still don’t work, then you can try using some white vinegar. Dab on a little vinegar and then rub it into the stained area. Let it sit for a few minutes and then rinse it off.
Once the paint is gone, be sure to launder the item immediately. The longer you let the paint sit, the harder it will be to get it out.
Once you have followed the steps above, you should be able to get your clothes looking good-as-new in no time!
