Enjoy all of life’s messy moments, and let us do the dirty work. When you paint outside the lines, it’s more fun anyway! Luckily, paint, lacquer, and oil paint can all be erased!

Apply product(s): Apply Stain Solution directly to the affected area. Then sprinkle our All-Purpose Bleach Alternative on the Stain Solution to create a powerful paste.

Work the stain: Work the solution into the fabric using your finger or our Stain Brush. If any paint is left behind, try the Wash & Stain Bar. Create a lather using the soap and gently work it into the material.

Pour water on the stain: For added cleaning power, pour boiling water from a kettle onto the affected area. (Pour from a safe height so the water won’t splash on you.) The force of the pouring water helps to do the work. You can also use hot water from a faucet set to its highest water pressure output.

Soak up to 30 minutes: Soak the item in a basin filled with hot water and 1 capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative.

Reapply or repeat as needed: If the stain is not completely gone, repeat this process until satisfied.

Remove odors: Stains and odor often go hand in hand. Soak the item in a basin of hot water mixed with ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar.. Launder the item: Wash according to our instructions.
