    Question for the housekeeping types

    Two of my leather dining chairs have paint on them. They were against a wall that was painted with low VOC paint, and on a humid day the paint stuck to the chairs.

    What product would you use to get this stuff off? The chairs are green, and I'm not sure if the dye is colorfast. Talk to me about living better through chemistry.

    I'd use a dremel.

    HTH.

    Those chairs are seriously uncomfortable by the way. Don't get the Crate and Barrel Folio chair if you value your ass' comfort.

    Thankfully, no.

    I would settle for a variety of mismatched plaids and dark colors to offset the dark wood paneling, but then I got married.

    At first I thought "WTF?", so I goggled it. The things you don't know until you look...





    srsly, first try is a bit of baby oil - gently, like with a qtip. It won't happen fast. Then perhaps some OMS leftover from the homebrew, testing on an inconspicuous spot first. Then start getting angry with it if necessary.
    A good habit is as hard to break as a bad one..

    Just paint the rest of the chairs. They'll look better painted.
