Any cleaning solutions for getting paint off of floors?


Can anyone please tell me the safest way to get both water and oil based stains off my linolium floor without ruining it???

Help!

Scraping with a putty knife (or sometimes even a fingernail)

Oops! or Goof Off will work for latex, but can affect some vinyl floors

Nothing works for oil except scraping

I think someone told me that they used acetone for this but you need to put a little on and wipe it off rather quickly.





Use a drop cloth "before" painting next time
