Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you how to remove paint from Plexiglas. Just like with any other type of glass, you want to be careful and make sure that you don't scratch the too much. I know it is a little more durable than glass but still it can be scratched and it can make it look worn. So if you have paint on , you don't want to run for your razor like you would if it's regular glass. Here's what I suggest. Grab some whitening toothpaste. Whitening toothpaste has tiny, tiny granules in it that can buff out stains, scratches or anything that you may find in like that, so...here we go, just a little bit on the tip of your finger and use this to buff. The scratchiness of the whitening toothpaste will remove the paint. You may have to repeat this one or two times. And if you want to grab a soft bristle toothbrush, you can do that, but be very cautious. You don't want to scratch the plexiblock, the Plexiglas. The scratch is going to be a lot harder to remove than paint. But once you've gotten it off, it should look brand new. A lot of times you get paint on there from a construction job or something like that. That's how you remove it. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is how you remove paint from Plexiglas.
