How to Remove Acrylic Paint from Clothes

Step 1

Grab a few paper towels and scrape the paint off from your cloth as soon as possible. Try to get rid of as much paint as you can.

Dab the paper towel on the stain and let it absorb as much paint as it can. Use a new paper towel for a better result.

You can also use a spoon that will help to get rid of the excess part.

Step 2

The main ingredient to remove acrylic paint form your cloth is isopropyl alcohol. You will find it in your nearby pharmacy.

Apply a few drops of isopropyl alcohol in the affected area. Make sure the area gets completely soaked by the alcohol.

Step 3

Now you will need to scrape off the paint as much as possible. Using isopropyl alcohol will make the paint softer.

It might not be possible to get rid of the stain by scraping. If there is still some stain left, through your piece of cloth in a washing machine.

Step 4

Wash the piece of cloth in a regular manner. Use a good amount of detergent and run the machine.

After pulling out the piece of cloth, you will see that the rest of the acrylic paint has come off your cloth.

Step 5

After that, let it dry for a few hours, and your piece of cloth will become new like before.
