Acrylic paint stains on fabric can be a real dilemma. While wet, acrylic paint is water soluble, but once dried, it becomes permanently embedded. If you can get to that paint dribble on your shirt while it’s still wet, these steps can help work the stain out.
Remove excess paint
Immediately scrape away wet paint. It’s best to do this before the paint has a chance to dry into the fabric.
Rinse the stain
Try to rinse out the paint by running warm water through the back of the stain. This prevents paint from seeping deeper into the fabric.
If the fabric has color or spandex, wash it in the warmest water recommended using detergent and Clorox 2® for Colors.
If the item is white and bleach-safe, wash in the hottest water recommended on the care label using a good laundry detergent and ⅓ cup Clorox® Disinfecting Bleach.
Never bleach wool, silk, leather or spandex.
