How To Remove Paint Stains/Last Year’s Stains

    With art projects and home renovations in full swing, odds are that you will find yourself dealing with some paint stains on your clothing.

    Paint is designed to be long-lasting and colorful so it can tend to be a little trickier to remove. But fear not, we have a few tricks to help you get that paint stain out of your garments.

    Water-based

    Water-based paint stains are a little simpler to get out of clothing. Incredibly easy to break down, these paints can come off in a few easy steps:

    1. Scrape as much of the paint off as possible. If the paint stain is dried on, dab it with warm water to rehydrate the stain, making it easy to remove from the fibers.
    2. Grab some Biz Stain Odor & Eliminator for pre-treat. Just apply directly to the stain and let it work its magic for 15-20 minutes.
    3. Follow the garment tag directions for washing. You can also boost your detergent with the help of Biz Liquid Boosters.
    4. Check to see if the stain is removed. If it is, you can dry the clothing per tag instructions. If not, repeat steps 2 & 3.

    Oil-based

    Oil-based paint is a little bit trickier to remove from clothing. Fabrics love to soak up grease and oils. So there is an extra step in removing oil-based paint stains.

    1. Scrape as much of the paint off as possible. If the paint stain is dried on, dab it with warm water to rehydrate the stain, making it easy to remove from the fibers.
    2. Gently dab with paint thinner until the paint is gone.
    3. Use Biz Stain Odor & Eliminator to pre-treat the area where the paint thinner was applied. Let it work its magic for 15-20 minutes.
    4. Follow the garment tag directions for washing. You can also boost your detergent with the help of Biz Liquid Boosters.
    5. Check to see if the stain is removed. If it is you can dry the clothing per tag instructions. If not, repeat steps 2 & 3.
