Solvents to Remove Acrylic Paint?

Answer

Acrylic paint is hard to get off of most surfaces. There are five solvents that work to remove acryllic paint easily. Those include lacquer thinner, rubbing alcohol, ammonia, acetone, and denatured alcohol. The safest thing to use is rubbing alcohol. Acetone is good for removing paint from skin and non-plastic surfaces. Lacquer thinner should be used in an open area where flames are non-existent since it is flammable. Denatured alcohol should be used on a slighly damp cloth to prevent combustion.
