Oops- smeared paint with Goof Off


Hello all,
Dripped latex paint on a mexican tile floor. Tried to clean it up with Goof Off.

Big mistake. Seems to have smeared the finish on the tile. Now I have a big, cloudy mess. Tried mineral spirits- no improvement.

Any suggestions from you paint magicians would be appreciated.

Off topic- got the last three quarts of Ben Moore Impervo at my local store. Pro backed out on spraying for me- only has an airless. Waiting to find the right equipment. It's 115 here right now- so cooler temps might help too. No sense doing it wrong then doing it over.

Thanks again for being here.

Patricia

I'll give denatured alcohol a shot.

I thought I was being so good using Goof Off!
