Did your kid spill a ton of paint on your curtains? Worry not! Here are some simple steps to get rid of the colours on your curtain

Before you think of discarding curtains that have been ruined due to paint stains, hold on and read this piece.

While unleashing their inner Picasso, children are bound to spill paint here and there. Worry not! These 3 techniques will come to your aid in case your curtains are at the receiving end.

1) Spray some rubbing alcohol on the stain. Take a rag and rub the area gently. Once all the paint is out, launder the curtain as you normally would. Repeat the process till your curtains are clean and paint-free.

2) Pour 2 drops of Vim dishwash gel on the stained area and allow it to soak in. Take an old cloth and rub it against the stained area. Now, rinse the curtain and launder it as you normally would.

3) If the paint is still wet, remove as much as the paint you can with a knife or with the edge of a spoon. Blot the stained area with a rag. Apply 2 drops of chemical paint solvent to the spot and blot the stained area till the stain disappears. Let the curtain soak in clean water for a while and launder it as you normally would.

Top Tip

Don’t apply water or rinse the stain before you begin cleaning. It will only make the stain more difficult to remove.
