    When painting, folks generally wear clothing that it doesn't matter if they get stained or not as it's difficult to impossible to remove paint stains from most clothing. Either you will damage the clothing or find that you cannot remove the stain completely. I suggest that you may just want to "retire" the stained clothing and use them the next time you are painting.

It's over.

They are beyond saving. There was a chance when it was very fresh and wet, and if you started with the right thing (paint thinner) as mentioned on the paint can's label. But once it dries, or you set it with the wrong chemical, it's all over but the shouting.

Why were you in fresh paint areas anyway? Stay away.
