Black permanent marker! Since I always wear black pants (jeans aren't allowed at our school), those permanent markers cover most small stains nicely. Then, at least, your eye is not drawn to the (formerly white) paint spot. Actually, the same goes for black shirts.

Every once in awhile I will notice a
paint spot, but with patterns they blend in.
<snip>As far as the clothes issue, shopping for student teaching clothes has
me perplexed...I'm supposed to look nice to make a good impression (I
haven't earned the respect yet!) but I know everything I wear will get
dirty!!! Shopping is usually fun, but buying nice clothes that I know will
get ruined is depressing. Maybe we should start wearing the checkered pants
uniform like the chefs do, apparently that's supposed to hide stains.
