    I think it may be too late; however, I will ask my question anyways.

    Last year I did a bunch of painting for this couple on the exterior of their house. It was stucco i was painting, so a significant amount of chunks covered in paint would fling off the roller and hit my body. Mainly, hit my jeans. They are old, faded, Carhartt brown work pants. This happened approximately middle to late august of 2005.

    Is there anything I can use to get this paint off? It is suposed to be water based I'm pretty sure. But since it's been on there so long, and gone through the dryer a few times, is it possible? I know solvent works on oil-based stains that are fresh. Not sure about old.

    Any help from the international branch of ck5 brotherhood?

    What's wrong with paint on your pants? Afraid someone will think you've worked in your life?

    Actually, that's rare enough these days to get you lynched!

    I just don't enjoy going out and public and people giving me weird looks.
    I have too many "painting" clothes.
    Does ammonia actually work?
