    A dry Microfibre cloth brings up the car seats a treat, almost back to new.

    Its been on for about a month or so, Johnstone's kitchen & bathroom emulsion paint, painter long gone I've sorted issues with him so just need to get it off best I can, I've tried a clay bar but it just scratches the bath.

    Emulsion paint shouldn't be that hard to remove.

    Fill bath with hot add a bit of washing powder & leave it for a hour, have found it softens paint, making it easy to remove with a non scrating scaley pad..

    It’s the kitchen / bathroom paint though, differant ‘recipe’ to regular emuslion

    It’s resistant to moisture and has an impervious slight sheen to it. Will need a bit more encouragement I recon than regular emuslion

    If on bath edges as well, soak towels in soapy water, ring out a bit and fold up, leave to soak on bath edges

    Try scraping off with say an old credit card after a good soak - good luck :)

    Emulsion should be easy to remove regardless of type of emulsion.:)

    And if all fails use the credit card to buy a new bath.

    Go and purchase a tub of Big Wipes, moisten one with water and wipe over paint splashes ......leave for a couple of minutes and repeat again, this will soften the paint ready to wipe off using a fresh Big Wipe with a little ebow grease.

    No flushing them down the bog though!
    Are we talking about Wayners or the bath now?

    That’s genuinely funny Astra - made me laugh, good shout !

    Didn’t find comment funny other day though, dunno, could have been me perhaps, been busy at work and life generally, was a bit grumpy, felt like ‘I had the painters in’ :eek:
