    Paint on leather

    Hey guys hows it going? I have some latex paint spill on some leather BUT don't worry its not in the trans am. It is in my work truck, I did house painting over the summer for an internship through my college about running a business and I had to lug around paint cans so it was almost bound to happen. Im not too worried about it but I was just wondering if there was any way to get it off or make it fade just a little. Any tips will help. Thanks

    Theres a few ways to remove paint from leather but you have to be careful not to ruin the finish or the "dyes" that are in the leather.
    Heres a few idears that worked for me a time or two...
    Mr.clean magic eraser
    Goo remover
    warm soapy water and dull putty knife to peel the paint off.
    Either way just be careful not to go crazy with rubbing or scraping because you will end up with more damage than what you started with.
    Good luck either way

    Try to roll the stained leather between your fingers to break off as much as you can.
    I've removed nail polish off leather seats before with "acetone-free" Nail Polish Remover, and as mentioned by sunsetorangess, be careful when using chemicals.
    Test on a small hidden spot to see if it discolors leather...

    Hey thanks for the help guys, I tried the Goo Gone method and that seemed to work well, at least to my satisfaction. You could still kinda see where some paint was but you really gotta be trying to find it to see it.
