How to remove primer from a screen door?
How do you remove primer from a screen door? I got some primer on my screen door and i cant remove it, is there a liquid primer remover or something?

If it's on the screen, you could try a stiff brush; otherwise, and most likely, you'll need to replace it. If it's on the door and the door is metal or vinyl, you could try scraping it off with a fingernail. If it's wood, what color do you want your screen door? A paint remover would most likely also remove the original finish.

There are a couple of variables here. First, is it on the metal framing of the screen door, or the screen itself? Also, base primer is it? Oil-based, Xylene based, water based? If it's just water based (also called latex) primer and it's on the metal, just grab some denatured alcohol, put it on a rag and rub until the primer comes off. If it's oil-based, use mineral spirits or paint thinner. I wouldn't use a stripper, because as the first comment said, it will remove the finish. If it's on the screen itself, you mind as well just replace the screen (very easy and cheap to do). If it's latex, on the metal, BEFORE you use any chemical, see if you can just peel it off, generally even with a primer, they don't stick well to oil-based, electrostatically painted surfaces because they are so hard and slick. Good luck!
