removing paint drips off baseboard?


Hi everyone-
I painted the other day and got some of the flat on my baseboards- how do I safely remove the brown colored paint off the semi glosss covered baseboard? I was thinking of lightly sanding it down, but I am afraid that i wont get through the mils that are on there, and it will look ridiculous.

Any suggestions from the pros?
Thanks a ton guys

Are you going to paint the base? If so you could sand or scrape off your drip and paint base.

If you had no plan to paint base you can probably pull it off with some oops or goof off. oops would be my pick. Since it is fresh it should come off pretty easy.
Next time carry a wet rag with you and keep an eye out for drips or splatters, and get them cleaned off right away.
