How to get paint out of your clothes

I can’t tell you how many times I ruined a good pair of pants or my favorite shirt because I got paint on them, and ended up using them as work clothes until I figured out a way to clean them.

I have a habit of wiping my hands on my clothes when I am working because I really don’t care what my work clothes look like, and to be perfectly honest, I’m too lazy to come down off the ladder to get a rag.

A couple of times, when I went to the studio to do a quick sample while wearing my good clothes, I inevitably wiped the paint on my favorite jeans. UGH!

Maybe you have kids that love to paint and have ruined their clothes while making an art project. Don’t throw them away just yet.
