How To Remove Paint Stains From Nylon

Nylon generally should be dry cleaned. Always follow garment label instructions when pretreating and laundering your clothes. For colored garments, test an inside seam for colorfastness. If the garment is washable, follow the instructions below. For Water-Based Paint (including latex acrylic) – Rinse stain in the warmest water recommended on the garment label. Then pretreat with Purex® detergent and launder. Dried paint stains are very difficult to remove so it is important to treat the stain as soon as possible. For Oil-Bases Paints (including varnish) – Gently blot the stain with the solvent (thinner) listed on the paint label. Rinse, then pretreat with Purex® Complete with Zout® detergent or Fels Naptha laundry bar soap and launder. If dry clean only, take it to the dry cleaner for stain removal.
