Paint on composite decking

Posted by tiptoptommyt (My Page) on

Folks - I have a composite deck and was painting an area near the deck and somehow managed to get some paint splatter on the deck....didn't notice until it was dry. What an idiot!

Now I'm trying to remove it. Took one of the plastic/nylon wirey scrubbers and it worked some...but lightened the area which is kind of obvious. Tried a touch of mineral spirits which had no affect on anything.

I'm at a loss....really paying for my mistake!

Does anyone have any ideas?

Did you use latex paint? Goof Off will remove dried latex paint, but I'd test it first to make sure it doesn't stain or remove color from your deck.
I've read where others have used Krud Kutter with success.

Don't do any more aggressive scrubbing..........

Thanks for that suggestion....I'll give it a try.
