How To Remove Paint Stains After Repainting The Walls

Oil-based paint stains are quite difficult to clean and it’s impossible not to stain the flooring, tile or other objects in the house when you redecorate and paint the walls. But here are some solutions that will help you!
Be careful to protect the surrounding surfaces as much as possible when using the oil based paint. It’s the hardest paint to remove and you don’t want to see paint stains on the floor or on sanitary ware, windows or tiles.

Use sanitary alcohol or paint thinner
If paint stains are fresh, try to use paint thinner or alcohol. Dab the paint stains with paint thinner until they dissolve, and then use the alcohol to wipe the remaining traces. Finally, degrease it with lukewarm water and detergent.

Or you can use hydrogen peroxide and baking soda
If you want to remove paint stains on tiles or other porcelain items, rub the area with hydrogen peroxide, and then sprinkle with baking soda, and continue to rub with a soft cloth until it the stain is gone. Sprinkle hydrogen peroxide as often as needed to remove the color of the paint.

Acetone and a razor blade for the old paint
If you don’t have paint thinner, lightly clean the paint with a steel blade or a small scalpel, but be careful not to leave metal marks on the tile or on the sink. Then lightly swab the area with a cotton pad soaked in acetone to clean the last traces of color. Finally, polish the tile with a slightly abrasive detergent that degreases and bleaches.
