How to Remove Dried Paint Stains From Clothing

When you're painting, paint can easily splatter and get on clothes. You may not notice and the paint will dry on your clothes, causing a stain that may seem impossible to get out. Do not throw away clothes with dried paint stains because they may still be salvageable. These stains can come out of clothes with a few attempts and a little bit of time. It will usually cost you less to remove the stains than to replace the clothes.
