1. Brush, scrape and rinse as much of the paint from the surface as possible. 2. Soak in a solution of 1 quart water, ½ teaspoon liquid dish soap and 1 tablespoon vinegar for 30 minutes. Agitate occasionally. 3. Rinse with water. Allow to dry. 4. Apply alcohol to stain and cover with a pad of absorbent material dampened with alcohol. Let stand as long as any stain is being removed. Change the pad as it picks up stain. Press pad firmly onto the stain each time you check it. Keep stain and pad moist with alcohol. 5. Flush with alcohol and allow to dry. 6. Soak in a solution of 1 quart warm water, ½ teaspoon liquid dish soap and 1 tablespoon ammonia for 30 minutes. 7. Rinse with water. 8. If any stain remains, use chlorine bleach as directed in step 9. 9. Chlorine bleach should not be used on certain fabrics. Test an inconspicuous area of fabric to be sure it will not be discolored. Use a solution of 1 teaspoon bleach to 1 tablespoon of water. Apply with a dropper. Do not allow this solution to remain on the fabric more than 2 minutes. When the stain is removed, or after 2 minutes, flush with water onto clean absorbent material. Apply 1 teaspoon of vinegar and again flush with water. Be sure that all bleach is removed. 10. Wash in hot water with laundry detergent and OxiClean powder or Clorox 2 and rinse in warm water.
