Clean DRIED acrylic paint out of your paint brushes and clothes with Germ-X!!! As a high school art teacher, I have saved hundreds of dollars by soaking hard brushes full of dried acrylic paint in Germ-X. After just 5-10 minutes the paint dissolves away. I saved a new pair of jeans today too....I put a dab on the dried paint and left it for 5 minutes then came back and got it completely off with a toothbrush.
