Paint splatters and stains are a fact of life when painting a room. For example, a bathroom will experience paint spillage and staining in the bath, which is usually made out of porcelain. When the paint comes into contact with the bath surface, it will dry and bond, sticking to the object. Paint stains on porcelain objects are not too hard to remove, and with the right products, they can be easily taken off.

Put on rubber or latex gloves before proceeding to protect your hands from any injury.

Apply acetone nail varnish remover liquid on a hand towel, until it is damp. Rub the dried paint stuck on the bath with slight pressure, using a circular or an up/down motion with your hands, until the paint has fully dissolved and gone.

Dampen a hand towel with paint thinner. This chemical should remove paints that are oil based. With the towel in hand, rub into the paint splatter, using gentle pressure and a circular or up/down pattern with your hands.

Scrub off the paint stains from the bathtub surface using Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, which is a stain remover.
