Easy Tips To Banish Paint Spills From Bathroom Surfaces

0 5

Acrylic, fiberglass, and laminate are some of the most popular synthetic surfaces for use in bathrooms thanks to their affordable price point, resilience after years of use, and overall ease of maintenance. While they may seem pretty hard to the touch, when it comes to getting paint stains off of these surfaces, you may notice that certain removal methods — such as vigorous scraping with a razor — are too harsh for their synthetic composition.

To remove paint spills from any of the aforementioned surfaces, beginning with a gentle scraping is a good place to start. Using a plastic scraper or a credit card to try to lift any small paint splatters may work well for laminate, although fiberglass shower cells are often more porous, which may make it difficult to gain a solid grip under the paint. If you are struggling to get the paint to budge, using WD-40 can be a genius tip for removing paint in your house thanks to its ability to break up the strong bonds that make paint stick to surfaces (without causing damage to the surface itself). Begin by spraying the WD-40 on the paint stain, then wait one to three minutes before going in with a rag or plastic scraper to remove the now-loosened paint stain. Follow it up with a thorough wash, using a wet, soapy rag, then a final rinse with water to remove any leftover lubricant.
