It is a tricky task to remove paint from plastic. While it may be easy to strip paint from metal, wood, or ceramic, plastic requires more careful attention to keep the material intact. There are solvents out there that will easily damage or even melt plastic, so make sure to use plastic-safe paint removal products or methods like these. Using a scraper may remove the paint from a plastic product but not all the time.
First, a simple test if you are not sure what kind of paint it is, then we show how to remove paint from plastic: both latex and oil. You probably have what you need at home already. Latex will become gooey when exposed to certain solvents.
While it may take a bit more effort than a simple swipe to remove paint from plastic, especially if the paint has dried, the techniques below have proven to banish evidence of this common home improvement slip-up. So if you spot a fresh spill, fill a bucket with warm water and dish soapgrab a clean rag or paper towels, and wash it off. Once the paint is gone, hose down the item or use a clean, damp rag to rinse. If soap and water are ineffective, chances are the paint has begun to dry.
