clean up of roller spray on new laminate


I have some roller spray from eggshell latex to clean up, it is a little stubborn due to the grooves and texture of the laminate....will acetone affect the sheen on the laminate? I've tried ammonia cleaners and scrubby, and a little hard to clean, maybe a blunt scrape like a screw driver? or unbitten fingernails?

Warm water and a scrubby, as a last resort use goof off and a scrubby

A razorblade scraper with a new blade can be used to "shave" the overspray off. Just be sure that to run it gently so it does not dig into the laminate.

I would not use a razorblade on textured laminate.
Use soap/water and a stiff bristle brush.
Lacquer thinner as a final rinse.
