Is it possible to remove yellow paint stains from a black sweater?

Or do I just throw the damn thing away now.

Don't throw it away. Take a small paintbrush with the paint on it, splatter it all over the sweater, then it'll be fashionable. The eighties seem to be back..

I have a grey sweatshirt that I've had since high school. I still wear it from time to time. I got black paint on it while painting a stage in my sophomore year (seven years ago) and it still hasn't washed out after all those washings.

Try picking at it with your nails. Or a butter knife.

Paint yellow lines over the dots and go as the Blind Melon bee girl from their song 'No Rain.'

Dr. Paint doesn't even know how.. he suggests taking it to a drycleaner.

Maybe if the paint was latex, and not dry yet, but I doubt it. Otherwise NFW.
