Default Got spraypaint on something?

Here's a tip...

I was painting some bare metal I had after doing some welding to the bike. Well, of course, after the touch-up I noticed some spray paint had dripped down onto the front wheel fender. Shiny red fender + flat-black birdpoop drips = not cool. I tried scrubbing it with some Orange Blast cleaner to no avail.

So I looked around the garage for something that might be able to remove some dripped paint without damaging the fender's color.

DOT3 brake fluid. Yep, that'd work. TOO WELL. didn't use it.

Aaahh... WD-40. That cleaned my bathroom floor like a CHAMP. So I sprayed a little bit of it on the paint drips, and wouldn't ya know... Stuff came right off with a paper towel. Now the fender's as good as new, and you can't even tell I tried to use spray paint without properly protecting the surrounding area! Lesson learned.

Just thought somebody else might find themselves in a similar sitch, and now you know --- WD-40 will safely (more or less) remove over sprayed cheap rattlecan paint.

i never thought of that. good info to have.


but uh... you seriously wd-40'd your bathroom floor?

make sure you've got your "help, i've fallen and i can't get up" button handy!

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

You can also spray things with WD-40 (or brush it on for cleanliness) that you fear might get oversprayed.
