While re-painting your house, paint tends to create an accidental mess in unwanted spaces like your bathroom washbasin. This not only dirties your washbasin, but also looks aesthetically unpleasant, especially when you have guests over. Don’t worry, we have got you covered. In this article, we have suggested a simple step-by-step process to help get rid of these paint stains from your washbasin and get it back to its original look.
Try the steps below to have your sink clean and stain-free.
Use an old spoon or blunt knife to gently scrape off as much of paint as possible from the surface of your washbasin. Remember not to scrape it roughly as it can damage the basin.
Spray a heavy coat of a lubricant, like WD-40, directly on the stains. You can easily buy the lubricant at any hardware store. Make sure to cover the stains evenly. Let the lubricant sit on the stain for 20 to 30 minutes. If the stain is a stubborn one, you may need to let it sit for a little longer, probably up to 40 to 45 minutes.
Again, scrape off the paint using the same spoon or knife. This will remove most of the paint stains.
Make a soapy cleaning solution comprising a bowl of warm water and a tsp. of dishwashing gel. Dip a spong in this solution and scrub the entire area. Finally, wash with clean water.
There you have it! Using this easy solution, you will be able to remove those pesky paint stains with ease.
