    Just got paint on my coat

    Some idiiot painted a lampost and didnt think to put " Wet paint" sing near on on it, so i brushed past in a rush getting red paint on my suede coat.

    Does anyone have any idea on how to get it off. White spirit will do it, buti dont have any. Any other ideas?

    washing up liquid?

    Spit might work, sounds minging, but spit has some chems in it that are very good for getting blood out of clothing, might work for paint, but, tbh, I doubt it. I doubt you'll ever get it out, like Agent said, if it was the council, I'd send them the bill.

    Try freezing it with an ice cube and seeing if it'll crack/brush out? White spirit will probably wreck your suede.

    I use a suede brush for my shoes when I get mud on them, works great.. Maybe a mix of a suede brush and chicken's suggestion?

    Well... the suede brush has strong fibres.. but not made of wire.. I thought wire brushes had metal fibres or whatever?... hmm, thinking about it though, that would do even more damage to the coat probably... nevermind me.

    I presume it was oil based paint rather than water based? Stain devils do some great stuff to remove paint...

    Tips:

    Chewing gum and mud are the only stains best left to dry before removing, so in your case, attack this sooner rather than later.
    Never use hot water to soak stains as it can set them. Many stains can simply be removed by soaking in cold water. (dont think that'll work in your case)
    To avoid making the cloth look more distressed, before attempting to remove a stain, test the colourfastness of an unseen area.

    Paint – For emulsion, rinse with cold water, rub with household soap and wash. For gloss (most prob your lamppost paint), use white spirit on reverse (except on acetate or triacetate), and absorb the paint with a white cloth.

    ...is the best info I could find.... Can't find anything apart from white spirit! Good luck!

    Take it to a dry cleaner, they can advise you. Trying harsh cleaning agents yourself may bleach it! Suede is very difficult to clean properly.

    I recommend using Swarfega. This stuff can get paint off anything imo.
