    Fingernail to get the most of it, then goof off for the rest.

    Use a credit card to scrape off as much as you can. Then wet a paper towel with Goof Off and place it on the residue for a while to soften the paint. Scrape and wipe.

    First, I would use a razor blade to carefully scrape off the major amount of paint. Then I would use "Goof-Off" to rub off the rest- my husband didn't believe me at first when I told him about the product! You'll want to restore the finish under the blob, which may require a tinted furniture restorer but a good waxing may be all you need.

    These are all good ideas - scrape off what you can with a razor blade then try straight ammonia to soften & clean it off. Don t know the chemical reasons but ammonia and ammoniated cleaners work on latex paint
