I stained my deck using an Olympic oil based stain and I managed to spray some of the stain on the vinyl siding of my house. Any thoughts on how to remove the stain from the vinyl siding? Thank you!

pros use masking to keep it off in the first place.

Second good choice is to replace the stained siding

third is to try some paint remover - but that may change the texture/finish onthe vinyl by attacking iot also. Maybe a strong citrus type paint remover would be a good compromise.

Excellence is its own reward!

You have several options. First, check the can for instructions. Second, ask someone at the store you bought it. Third, contact the manufacturer either by phone or web.

Usually, oil based products can be removed from non-porous surfaces with common solvents such as paint thinner or lacquer thinner. Test on a small area first to be safe. Follow safety guidelines on the solvent label before using.

The best and o key thing to use is Acetone. I used everything else and nothing worked except acetone on a green scrubbing pad

I've read that Acetone will cause oxidation as it also takes the finish off the siding. Any other suggestions?

I just did the same thing today. Google says get Goof Off Paint Splatter Remover at Lowe's. I'm headed there on monday. I'll let you know how it worked. I already tried minersl spirits with no luck.
