The characteristic of acrylic paint is that it adheres easily and permanently on fabrics, so a stain of this type is much easier to remove if it is wet (once it is dry the adhesion is enhanced).

If you have not been able to prevent the stain from hardening, try to scrape it off with a knife or spoon before washing the garment. 

Another tip is to use absorbent paper to remove the paint stain, especially if you have just stained it.

Let’s look at the materials you need to know how to remove paint from clothes:

Essential materials:

  • Dish soap (detergent)
  • Toothbrush
  • Bowl of water

Wet or fresh stain:

  • Step#1

    You will put some dish soap on the stain and with a toothbrush, you will rub the stain until it is completely removed(you can wet the brush to scrub on clothes).

    You can repeat this step several times until the stain is gone.

  • Step#2

    Then you can put your clothes in the washing machine and wash them as you always do.

Dry stain :
