Revive Paint-Stained Clothes With An Ingredient From Your Kitchen
Reviving paint-stained clothes is possible with a common kitchen ingredient: baking soda. First, dab away as much of the paint as possible, leaving behind only the stained fibers.
For oil-based paint stains, mix 2 tablespoons of baking soda with 1 cup of boiling water. Apply the mixture to the stain, allowing it to soak in and lift the paint from
the fabric.
Then, clean the article of clothing in a washer with detergent. For water-based and latex paint stains, form a paste using 2 tablespoons of baking soda with a splash of cold water.
Apply this paste to the stain, letting it sit for 10 minutes and penetrate the fabric. Afterward, rinse off the paint, and the stain should be effectively removed.
