Getting Acrylic Paint out of Clothes.....

The discussion of the Krud Kutter.................

Some friends and I have been having a discussion about how to get acrylic paint out of clothes and I mentioned my favorite "all purpose" cleaner Krud Kutter. I use this for everything, as a laundry spot remover, to clean my floors, to clean the tub, grease remover, etc......I could go on and on. It is hard to find in some areas (I get mine at Lowes by the gallon jug, it is also available at Wal-Mart) so a few people were wondering if it really works. So.......here is my experiment for your benefit......


I put green (because you will be green with envy over my Krud Kutter) Making Memories Acrylic Paint on an old white T-shirt. Ok, so I didn't put it on there, I poured it on there. I let it dry for 2 hours, my husband is a witness...



Then I sprayed the spot with Krud Kutter and wet with cold water and gently worked with a soft bristle toothbrush, rinsing and repeating as necessary (it took me 3 rinses)





And .........................................................................




I think my experiment was a success. So get shopping ladies....(this experiment or testimonial was in no way sponsored by Krud Kutter....lol)

NOTE: In answer to the questions about using it on colors....I have used it in the past on colors but as with a cleaners I would say it depends on the fabric and dye set. I have not had any problems but you want may to test a small inconspicuous area before proceeding.

Thanks for experimenting and posting this Beverly. Now I will have to start the search for it. I like that the website says it is an earth-friendly cleaner.

Take Care.
