Spilt gloss paint!!!

Spilt gloss paint...What can I do to get it off the road?

I was moving some paint to my new house and dropped a pot of white gloss paint on the road (luckily not in my car!!!). I soaked up most of the paint with sand and have now left a layer of sand over the (big) stain to hopefully disguise it from the neighbours until I can figure out how to clean it.

What would be the best way to clean this or how do get this cleaned? (Without paying a fortune!).

Help, I don't want angry neighbours when I've just moved in :(

White spirt, but it will wear away in time, you might make a bigger mess

Shins.

The longer you leave it the harder it will be to remove, nitromors will soften it and a pressure washer will normaly remove any residue.

Problem is you are not really supposed to wash such substances down the drains, so be alert.

I could call you clumsy but I won't, i've done it myself :oops:

I'll look into Nitromors and see how it goes.
