My son came home from kindergarten on Friday with his clothing covered in tempera paint... Usually they wear smocks to art class, so I'm not sure what happened. Since it was school spirit day, he had been wearing a favorite sweatshirt with the logo of the local basketball team.
I told him that I was pretty sure the paint wasn't coming out, and we'd all resigned ourselves to the fate of his sweatshirt. But I soaked it in a pretty strong Oxy Clean solution this morning, rinsed, and then poured detergent directly onto the paint stains. Guess what is now hanging on the clothes drying rack, completely paint free??
I've always been skeptical of products like Oxy, but I have never had any luck with tempera paint stains in the past. That's why we usually send older clothes to art class, but what can you do when it's spirit day? So happy to be the laundry hero today! :)
