I have a gallon of peach color paint I no longer use. Colorant has floated to the top of the white base, and I scooped some out, but the paint still has some peach in it.

is it possible to remove most of the colorant to get the paint back to a whiter color?

I'm a great believer in not being a throw-away society, but I think I'd be taking 15-year old paint to the recycling centre. Chemicals break down, become inactive and evaporate. For the sake of the cost of a can of good quality paint it just doesn't seem worth trying to tinker with it to make it the colour you want then expect it to look nice on a wall.
