Removing Paint from Jeans

I wore my favorite jeans when helping my girlfriend paint her front room bright yellow. I got paint all down my pant legs. How do I get it out? Please help.

I don't think you can get this out, sorry. I have never been able to get paint spots out of clothes. You might have been able to wash this out if you had tried immediately when the paint was wet, but after it has dried, I know of nothing that will remove paint.

Use a heaping amount of rubbing alcohol and an old toothbrush. Works all the time!

If this is water color paint, it should wash right out. I suppose there might be a stain if it is a strong color or something like a kids tempra paint, but if you treat it with something like Oxiclean or bleach the jeans (who doesn't like faded jeans) it should come out. However, if this is house paint or acrylic paint, you are stuck with it. Acrylic paints do not wash out after they are dry.
