How much trouble can you get into when painting outdoors?
Likewise, repainting window trim on a house can result in spills that mar the appearance of brick or cement surfaces. Some paint might easily get on the window itself, requiring special cleaning. If you’ve stenciled a design on a planter, table or even a concrete step outside your home, you may find that there’s paint in areas you didn’t intend to paint. Paint and varnish almost inevitably will drip or run, which means that you need a product that can quickly and effectively remove it before it becomes a permanent stain. If you’re working on outdoor projects on a windy day, or even if your hand slips while you’re applying paint or varnish, you’re then faced with the problem of getting it off your skin without using harsh solvents.

What kinds of cleaning products will help get you out of trouble?
Environmentally friendly products are the best kind to choose. A water-based product that is formulated to clean specific kinds of stains rather than to work on certain types of surfaces will be friendlier to the environment. Many eco-friendly products today, such as Motsenbocker’s Lift-Off line, are designed to be safe for the environment, the surface on which they’re used and the person using them. Thanks to a water-based formula featuring low VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and biodegradable properties, Lift-Off products can clean up spills, drips and splatters as well as or often even better than other products that aren’t as safe for the environment.
Many paint-remover products claim that only one special formula used in their products is necessary to clean every kind of paint or varnish from a variety of surfaces. Different Motsenbocker products, on the other hand, are formulated to specifically work with different types of stains and surfaces.
The Latex Paint Remover formula, for example, can clean new paint spills as well as those that have been on a surface for some time. The PVR Paint and Varnish Remover is a gel that quickly breaks down the molecular bonds of the spills and stains rather than using more caustic solvents. Caulk and Foam Sealant Remover takes care of spills and drips from latex foams that are either wet-based or dry-based, silicones, adhesives used in construction and many other similar products. All of these products are safe to use on the surfaces that have paint spilled on them, tools that are used and even on the hands.
Completing a project yourself for your home gives you a real sense of satisfaction. Dealing with the inevitable accidents that occur when you do a project, whether it’s noticeable or not, shouldn’t take as much time as doing the project itself. Motsenbocker products will help you clean up any kind of surface, whether it’s wood, brick, and fiberglass or even your skin with as minimal a fuss as possible. It’s worth it to have Motsenbocker Lift Off products on hand whenever you’re ready to paint, varnish and finish anything around your house.
