My painter cleaned the brushes in my kitchen sink instead of the basement sink. I have some paint flecks here and there and before I try anything I was wondering if there is a good way to get the paint off without ruining the stainless. Thanks!

    I use Kleenex King on my stainless sink and have even removed paint splatter with it. Works great. Bar Keepers Friend is another great product.

    Oops! That's Kleen King.

      @Debbie Silva Haha, I was wondering why I'd never heard of Kleenex King!

    Goo Gone has a spray to take off paint.

    I'm famous for ALWAYS washing my paint brushes out in the stainless steel sinks in either my laundry room or kitchen! Any household cleaner like Comet (what I use) or Bar Keeper's Friend and a scrubby sponge will easily remove it (as long as it is latex paint). If you have large dried flecks, you can carefully remove them with the edge of a razor blade.

    I'm always cleaning my brushes in the sinks and I just use a scotch-brite scrubbing pad and dish soap.

    Hi Debbie, hope this helps you out. Vinegar is an effective, natural solvent that can be used to remove dried paint from a variety of metals – galvanized steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, bronze, or copper. The acetic acid in vinegar is what gives it the ability to loosen paint from metal.

    I would call the painter and ask them how they can fix the problem they caused.
