Trick, oil or latex

Ever wonder if you have oil or latex on your trim, and doors?

Trick....wash a area with mild soapy rag, let dry.

Take a rag with ammonia on it, straight out of bottle, wipe area you cleaned a few wipes with ammonia rag. If paint comes off on rag, you have latex paint on that area, oil paint will not come off on the rag.

Ever have a customer complain that when they wipe there walls down, that they wipe paint off their walls? Tell them to stop using a cleaner with ammonia in it, and the paint will stop coming off their trim, and or walls.

Or you could just take some Goof Off and do the same thing and save some time.
