    With out a picture I'm not sure I'm picturing this correctly Patricia, but I think you should try a plastic putty knife. You might want to use the steam from your iron (if you don't have a handle held steam cleaner) to soften it up a bit first. I found the later tip out accidentally when steam cleaning our wood floors and noticed a few dots of paint I missed came right up just using my fingernails after I'd gone over them with steam.

    What kind of paint? If it's latex, you can gently scrape it off with your fingernail. If it's oil, goof-off is good, but use it very sparingly. It removes a lot of stuff, so check in a hidden place. Paint remover on a Q-tip. It all depends upon the type of paint and what finish is on your door frame.
