    Jann: if it's a small amount, a razor (carefully!) would peel it up

    Hi Jann. If it's just a small amount you can try scrubbing it off with the scrubby side of a two sided sponge dipped into a bucket of steamy hot, sudsy water. A little squirt of Dawn in the water should do. The hot water will soften the paint making it easier to scrub off.

    You can also try a steam mop. I didn't notice the paint that had splattered onto my hardwood when I was painting a bathroom door, until I was done. I cleaned the hardwood with the steam mop & simply wiped up the now loosened paint splatter with a paper towel. Good Luck :)

    If an entire wall, paint stripper.

  • I would think paint stripper.

    Oil paint might need stripper. Latex should be able to be scraped off with your thumbnail if there isn't too much.
