Found a nice bathrobe my neighbor had discarded; in good shape, except
there were a few small splotches of white paint on it.
Took it in, glopped some of my paint remover (3M Safest Stripper) on the
spots, let them sit 10-15 min., scrubbed them with an old toothbrush
under running water. Threw robe into the washer.
It came out fine. No discoloration or any other visible damage.
So maybe you don't have to throw out that nice shirt of yours you were
wearing when you thought you'd just touch up that paint job without
bothering to put on your work clothes.
