Even if you are careful, house paint can get everywhere: the floor, your clothes, your furniture, and even your vehicle! With that in mind, in today’s post, we give you some tips on how to remove house paint from your car.
How To Remove House Paint From Your Car?
Dealing with wall paint splatter can be challenging, as you don’t want to scratch your car or use products that will affect the paint.
Here are some ideas to get rid of house paint without damaging your vehicle:
Many house paints are water-based. If this is your case, you are lucky, because chances are good that all you have to do to get rid of the splatter is to wipe the area using a mild water-soap solution and a microfiber cloth.
If water and soap aren’t enough to remove the paint, try rubbing alcohol. Here, you have to be careful, though. Apply the alcohol first on a tiny spot that’s not very noticeable. This way, you’ll be able to check the effect on the alcohol on your car’s paint. Be advised that alcohol can potentially damage some automotive paints, so try this method under your own risk.
When neither water and soap or alcohol work, it’s time to call the pros. Take your vehicle to a reputable body shop and let them get rid of the house paint for you.
Can I Paint My Car With House Paint?
If you have some extra house paint lying around, save it for the next time your walls need a touch-up, DO NOT USE IT ON YOUR CAR.
Wall paint isn’t formulated to bond with metal, so not only will the result look awful, but it won’t last and it may end up damaging your car.
The only safe bet when it comes to repairing scratches, repainting your car, or touching up your current paint job is to leave it to a professional body shop.
