Don't Cry Over Spilt Paint!

Don't Cry Over Spilt Paint!

Posted by Matt Piggin on 24th May 2022

The original phrase 'Don't cry over spilt milk' is defined by as 'It doesn't do any good to be unhappy about something that has already happened or that can't be helped.'. 

When setting up for a paint job they say the results are all in the preparation, one of the most important preparation measures is to mask and dropsheet all surfaces that you do not want any paint on. However occasionally best laid plans (or carelessness / over confidence) can still result in paint spills, these can range from the small to the magnificent.  (see video at the end of my magnificent during the first lock down).

Large paint spills often involve insurance claims, replacing large sections of carpet or a living with a permanent residue on your concrete paths, while smaller drips are unsightly and annoying. 

While large spills are not an easy fix, If you could easily remove the unsightly smaller spills and drips from carpet, tiles, vinyl, laminates, wood, bricks and so much more, Would You? or Would You Not? cry over spilt paint.

Well next time it happens you need to take a deep breath, spray on Lift-Off #5, wait 60 seconds and see the magic happen. This incredible product works!

Motsenbocker's Lift Off® began in 1990 when chemist and inventor Gregg A. Motsenbocker had a vision to create environmentally friendly paint and stain removers that actually work.

Lift Off Latex Paint Remover, is a patented, water-based, biodegradable formula that breaks the molecular bond between paint and surface. This enables easy and fast removal of latex paint from most surfaces. Lift Off® Latex Paint Remover does not melt or dissolve paint; it leaves it to be removed intact safely and cleanly 

Not only does Lift Off do the job, but it does so without the use of harsh chemicals. This revolutionary product is a low VOC, water-based, biodegradable, safe alternative for the environment.

Just simply follow the instructions - just like a scientific experiment to get the results you want and to ensure that there is no surface damage. Once you have the process down-pat, you can safely and cleanly remove overspray, clean tools and mop up those unsightly or magnificent spills like the one I mentioned earlier.  

Here's my magnificent spill, During the first lockdown in Auckland NZ, I was doing my usual CrossFit class online and decided as I had no weights to use a 10lt bucket of paint. First round went perfect, then ......... well watch and have a laugh on me CLICK HERE
