Acrylic Paint on Clothing

I have a dried red stain from acrylic paint in my jeans, how can I remove it?

Try fingernail polish remover. The kind "not" made for artificial nails is stronger. Sometimes rubbing alcohol works, but try the fingernail polish remover. Just dab some on with a cotton ball, wait about 5 min, then keep dabbing with a paper towel. You might also try an old toothbrush to get into the nap. Afterwards, pour on some liquid laundry soap then wash in the machine in warm or cold water. (not hot!) You may have to repeat this 2 or 3 times. Do not put any stain in the dryer or iron. The heat will "set" the stain!


If this doesn't work, try the other type of fingernail polish remover (made for artificial nails) or, they also make a paint remover for clothes. It's sold in craft stores, fabric stores, and some home stores (like Home Depot). (01/18/2010)

I have had success with hand sanitizer and dried in paint. I had it handy and it worked. Took some rubbing. It also cleans paint from paint brushes. Good luck. (01/20/2010)
