I sat in paint!

christy2828November 1, 2008

I painted my kitchen and somehow got paint on my rear. And then I sat on one of my blankets. I didn't figure it out until it had dried. Does anyone know how to get it off of my jeans and blanket? Thanks for any suggestions :) Christy

If's it's latex, let it dry completely and you should be able to scrape or pick it off with your fingers/nails. It's happened to me.

Denatured alcohol will dissolve latex paint. Scrap off what you can and let the item soak in some alcohol. Rubbing alcohol will do. Then launder. There might a little staining if it has bright/dark pigments.

Goof off. That's the name of a product that will remove dried paint. It's available anywhere they sell paint. It's very effective, but you may it may make more than one attempt, if you have alot of paint on your pants. Good luck.

If you can't get it off then keep the jeans and make them your "paint" pants.

I agree with HappiLady. Save them and use them the next time you paint.
