    Default Removing paint from rubber weatherstripping

    I recently painted 4-5 coats of exterior paint on a new front door, and in the process managed to get some paint on the rubber weatherstripping. The paint is latex. What can I use to clean the rubber that's not so harsh that I'll damage it?

    Paint thinner will dissolve latex paint without harming most surfaces.

    Next time, pull the weather strip before you start painting, then there will be no chance of getting paint on it.

    before trying paint thinner try it in a small area to make sure it will not damagethe weatherstripping. if it does try something like Avon bath oil. it works wouinders on cleaning almost anything on any surface.
