How to Remove Paint From a Handbag

Paint stains are always tough to remove, even more so when your handbag gets stained. One of the most important determinants is the type of material your handbag is made of. Some materials require a lot of effort to rub off paint stains and problems arise when the handbag is of materials like leather etc. In addition to this, the type of paint also matters a lot. While paints can be of various types, oil paints are the most difficult to deal with.

While removing such stains try to remove the paint as soon as your handbag catches the stain. The earlier you remove it, the easier it will be. However, in case you spot the paint later, you will need to first scrap it with the help of a blade. Once you scrap the hardened layer, you might need to use water and glycerin to get the paint off.

Things Required:

– Glycerin
– Piece of cloth(White in color)
– Blade or scrapper
– Water in a bucket
