How to Remove Paint From Your Clothes

While painting my pallet flag, I got paint on the bottom of my shorts.  I didn't even notice it until I went to put away my laundry.  So, it went through the dryer and was set in.

I learned an old trick in art class many, many, did I mention many years ago.
Rubbing Alcohol
or maybe even hand sanitizer

Pour or squirt on enough rubbing alcohol to saturate the entire painted area.
Let sit a few minutes.
Scrape and repeat.

After 3 or 4 repeats, you will end up with a little paint residue left.
Throw it in the wash and the rest should come out.
If it doesn't, just repeat the steps above until it does.

Worked like a charm!

Be sure to check your fabric for any special washing instructions, 
before attempting this on your clothes.

Do a test spot on your clothing to make sure the rubbing alcohol won't remove the dye in the fabric.
