Removing Paint Dust On Clothing

How does one clean paint off shorts. I was outside with a nephew, I closed a barn door and the paint brushed off on my shorts. It is not wet paint, the barn has not been painted in a few years. It's like paint dust.

I'd try a stiff bruch first. If that doesn't work, you may be able to remove the paint with either rubbing alcohol if it's latex, or mineral spirits if it's oil-based. Use a clean cloth and work it in then blot it off. Test a less noticible area may affect your fabric. Rinse off and then launder.

When I've had problem spots in the past I've

rubbed Fels Naptha bar soap into it and just

washed as usual. Has worked for me for many

different things....even works on rubbings from

the old aluminum siding powder.
