Leather furniture can be a nice addition to any home décor, unless it has paint on it. Leather is such a temperamental material to clean that a little paint can make it look like a gigantic chore. However, acrylic paint is no match for a simple remedy that will take almost nothing in the way of time and effort. Soon your leather furniture will be as good as new.
Things You'll Need
- Soft clean cloth Extra virgin olive oil Toothbrush
Dab extra virgin olive oil onto the stained area with a soft clean cloth.
Allow the olive oil to sit on the paint for at least 15 minutes.
Use an old toothbrush and gently scrub the paint away adding more olive oil with the cloth as needed.
Wipe the area clean of any paint debris with a clean, dry cloth.
Tips & Warnings
- Cotton balls dipped in hairspray are also quite effective in removing paint without damaging the leather.
- Some commercial products may be harmful to leather so read the manufacturer's instructions carefully before using them.
