Use one type of stain remover (I can't remember the name now) and apply and rub thoroughly before you put into the washing machine.

I use the Dylon brand - they used to have 2 kinds - one for penmarks etc (alkaline) and the other for acidic sort (curry gravy, wine stains etc). Now I think they have 3.

Read instructions carefully coz the "leave-in" timings may differ.
Good luck with the stains! :wink:

Hi

Other than using thinner and turpentine, are there any ways of removing paint stains from white uniform.

Best wishes

Other than the above, would bleach work?

Are they ink stains or paint stains? I was able to remove ball pen ink stains - in fact I just did so this morning. :D I googled for an answer and tried 3 methods - nail polish remover, alcohol and lemon juice but wasn't unsuccessful. Fed up as it is a brand new shirt, I soaked the shirt in warm detergent water for a few minutes, put into the washing machine and bingo the stain was gone. So I am not sure which one works!

Dried emulsion paint stains is very difficult - I had this problem a few months ago and I couldn't remove them.
