Kimbry Parker

Unintended spray paint on your vinyl fence is unsightly. Whether you inadvertently got the spray paint on there yourself or your fence was a victim of graffiti, removing it is likely a priority to keep the appearance of the fence intact. You can remove spray paint from a vinyl fence quickly with the right products and techniques.

Restore the appearance of your fence by scrubbing off unwanted spray paint.

Step 1

Dip a paintbrush into a can of lacquer thinner. Brush a moderate coating of the lacquer thinner onto the spray paint spots.

Step 2

Let the lacquer thinner sit on the fence for 10 minutes. Scrub off the spray paint with a rag, rubbing the rag in the same direction at all times to prevent the paint from smearing.

Step 3

Wash the affected area of the fence with a sponge and a solution of hot, soapy water. Rinse well with water from the garden hose.

Step 4

Scrub any remaining spray paint from the fence with acetone. Moisten a rag with acetone and gently scrub away the paint. Wash the fence again with the soapy water solution and rinse well.
