I discovered this quick tip by accident and it's made a world of difference for me. If you're a messy, sloppy painter like I am, or even if you just make the occasional mistake, you can use my tip to clean all your paint "oopsies" even weeks after they've fully dried with no scraping needed. The secret is rubbing alcohol!
If you've got paint spills, Splatters, or Mistakes, this is all you need!

No more paint!
