Maybe you are a professional painter. Maybe you work at a home supply store that mixes paint. Maybe you enjoy attempting to recreate a decorating scheme you saw on a home improvement TV show. Regardless of the circumstances, any of these scenarios can result in accidentally mistaking your favorite fleece for a makeshift canvas. Before tossing your paint-splashed fleece in the trash, a few simple steps may help get the paint out for good.
Things You'll Need
- Old rag
- Rubbing alcohol or hair spray (with alcohol)
Pour the rubbing alcohol (or spray the hairspray) on the paint stain. Leave for several minutes.
Rub with rag until the paint starts to loosen. Use more alcohol or hairspray and repeat the process until all or most of the paint is out.
Wash the fleece, but do not put it in the dryer as the heat with set the stain for good.
If the stain is still visible after washing, add more alcohol or hairspray and rub with a clean rag. Repeat as needed.
