How to Remove Acrylic Paint Stains from Whites & Colours

Removing acrylic paint stains from whites & colours

This process will only work with wet paint stains. Unfortunately, once the paint has dried it is very difficult to remove.

1. Scrape

Scrape away as much paint as possible.

2. Rinse

Rinse the stain, from the back if possible, with warm water.

3. Pre-treat

For whites: pre-treat with 10ml of Albex™ Bleach into 1 litre of water, spot treat stain with this solution. Leave for 5 minutes.

For colours: Spray Albex™ Nostain Pre-wash Stain Remover Spray directly onto the stain. Leave for 5 – 10 minutes. Do not let the item dry.

4. Wash

Wash in the hottest water recommended by the care label using detergent.

5. Add

For whites add 1 cup of Albex™ Bleach to the detergent.

For colours add 100ml of Albex™ Nostain Stain Remover Washing Liquid.

6. Check

After the wash, check to make sure the stain is gone. If the stain is still present, repeat the process.
