Question: Does Paintball Stain Clothes?

Answer: Paintballs generally will not stain clothing or fabrics. I have found that certain brands of paintballs will stain certain light-colored fabrics. This is dependent upon the dye used in coloring the fill and the fabric. I have found that cheaper paints are more likely to stain white cotton or cotton/poly fabrics. I have never seen a paintball stain a dark-colored fabric.

A good rule of thumb is to not play paintball with light clothing and you shouldn't have a problem.
