Paint Spills

Paint spills and splotches will happen with even the most careful hand.  I’ll show you how a little heat can go a long way toward removing those messes.

1. If you have a curved or uneven area that you have to remove paint from, grab a hairdryer.  Point the blower at the paint for thirty seconds and then use some superfine steel wool to buff away the paint. Depending on the amount of paint and how long it’s been there you may have to repeat the process a few times.  Be gentle while you're working so you don't damage the paint underneath.

2. To remove paint splotches from a floor, wet a washcloth with hot water and lay it over the spots.  Let it sit for a minute and then use a credit card or plastic putty knife to scrape away the paint.

 I’m Mrs. FIXIT and it’s just that simple.
