How to Remove Paint From a Nylon Coat

Save

Paint can rub onto a nylon coat if you brush up against something that has been freshly painted, or if you were wearing the coat while painting something. Whether the coat is one of your favorites or you simply don't want to buy another right now, you'll want to remove the paint. The faster you can treat the spot on your nylon coat, the better.

Things You'll Need

  • Mineral spirits
  • Turpentine
  • Soapy warm water
  • Cold water
  • Small brush
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Nail polish remover

Oil-Based Paint

Step 1

Treat the paint stain while it's still wet if possible, as it will be harder to remove once the paint has dried. Dab mineral spirits or turpentine onto the paint to remove it. Flush the area with soapy warm water. Rinse with cold water.

Step 2

Scrape the paint off with your fingernail or a small brush if the paint has already dried.

Step 3

Apply mineral spirits or turpentine as a spot treatment if any paint is still there after scraping and brushing, or if the paint has left an oil stain.

Step 4

Flush away the paint and the cleaner with warm soapy water.

Other Types of Paint

Step 1

Treat the paint stain while it's still wet if possible, as it will be harder to remove once the paint has dried. Flush the area with warm water and remove as much paint as you can. Wash the spot again with soap and water and rinse with cold water.

Step 2

Scrape the paint off with your fingernail or a small brush if the paint has already dried.

Step 3

Use an alcohol-based solution if scraping or brushing does not remove it all. You can apply rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover on the spot.

Step 4

Flush away the paint and the cleaner with warm soapy water. Rinse with cold water.
