How to Remove Paint From Bed Liners

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

If you have spilled paint on your bed liner, you probably understand why you have a bed liner in the first place. A bed liner will protect the bed of your truck from scratches, dents and spills. It is much easier to remove dried paint from your bed liner than it is to remove it from the bed of your truck.

Step 1

Apply a small amount of lacquer thinner to the affected area. Let the thinner sit for a few minutes.

Step 2

Scrub the spot on the bed liner with a medium-grade brush. Use a towel to wipe away as much as you can.

Repeat the process until the paint is entirely removed. The paint may take several applications to completely come off.


  • Lacquer thinner is safe for bed liners. You can also use any generic paint removing solvent that is safe for plastics. Visit your local automotive parts store to see what products are available.


  • Do not use a wire brush on your bed liner. It will scratch the bed liner.
