My Two Year Old Likes Blood Red Paint. My Couch doesn't.
So I came home from work yesterday, and as soon as I stepped through the door Titus (my little boy) started going on in little boy talk and pointing. Then my wife yelled at me for leaving my paints where he could get them and paint our couch and carpet and a deck of Magic : The Gathering cards that were next to the paints. My wife tried to clean the paint with nail polish remover and that only thinned it and managed to get it into the couch more from what I could see. So like any good hobbyist I turned to my hobby tools. I figured if my acrylic brush cleaner could get all that extra crud out of my brushes it should work on other stuff too right? Well it did! A good working over with a scrub brush and a few good rinses with a little water and every thing looks like its back to normal. Later on I found that all my files and my brand new one week out of the package pin vise were also gunked up too so I still have a little cleaning to do. Oh the joys of children... at least the fact that he runs around the house brandishing his sword and yelling Emperor gives me hope for the future!
On a side note. If you play collectible card games and have kids make sure you put your cards in good quality sleeves. Even though they were only commons the cards came out paint free!
