removing latex paint from solar screens

paint has dried on, is there any solution to remove the paint drips other than replacing the solar screen?

thanks in advance,
hal

Excess paint can be scraped off with dull knife or paint scraper. Take care not to scratch or damage sunscreen. If paint is latex and your sun screens are plastic, you might want to try Goo Gone. Test first for any ill effects on edge of sun screen before proceeding on the surface. Goo Gone is touted for latex paint removal and its ability to remove paint splatters and spray from various surfaces including plastic.

thanks!

I'll give that a try. Assuming the petroleum base, not the water based type?

If oil-based paint was used paint thinner or turpentine might soften splatters for removal if given enough time. Test first for ill-effects.
