How can I safely remove paint over spray from wood laminate floors?

Recently moved into an apt where they repainted the walls with a sprayer and I have over spray on cabinets and the wood laminate floors. Most of the paint is close to the baseboards. I'm afraid I might damage the floors so I'm asking for your advice.

    I was gone one day when my landlord decided to spray paint the exterior of our units. My window was open and my crystal figurines on the sill...need I say more?

    Try using nylon netting from the fabric store, wad it up and apply a medium pressure to scrub. I've done this on hardwood floors with success, but check to make sure it doesn't scratch first. Some times you can use a single edge razor blade also.

    This is a problem the landlord should address. You did not do this, so why should you have to fix it. Most places if you fix things with their ok, you can deduct it from your rent, but check on that first. You should not need to fix their mess, the person who did the spraying should have adequately covered all surfaces so that this didn't happen.

    Lots of elbow grease and hot soapy water. I would use a kitchen sponge that does not have steel wool on it.
