I placed a full tin of valspar v700 Int wall/ ceiling matt paint on the back seat of my car, the lid hadn't been put back on correctly by B & Q and it fell over all over the black leather seat and all over the carpet in the back foot weel, Does anyone know how to get this off, it happened 2 days ago,
I'd give up on the carpet and order a replacement.
The usual techniques for removing paint from leather are to try one of the following treatments in a small inconspicuous unpainted area of leather first to see if it harms the leather (there are a variety of ways leather is made, so results can vary), then try it on the painted leather, keep trying treatments until you find something that works.
- vegetable oil (cooking oil)
- vaseline (petroleum jelly)
- warm soapy water (and a non-scratch scouring pad used gently)
- nail polish remover
- rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol)
You'll probably need to follow up with some leather conditioner.
