I would like to know if it's possible to remove dried paint drips from the baseboards without destroying them...

Use Goof-off, Oops, or any of the other dozen or so products on the market. Goof-off seems to work best......sold at Lowe's. Big thick drips take a while to remove. You may have to keep them wet with the Goof-off for awhile before trying to wipe up. There are other stronger chemicals you could use, but they would damage the woodwork. This works for latex based paints.......not on oil based paints.

Gymschu, I thinks she means runs that will need to be sanded. Get some eighty grit sandpaper and elbow grease.
