Interior Trim

I have a older home. When the previous owners painted the walls, they were careless and touches of paint got on the stained cherry wood trim. What is the best way to remove the paint that dripped, over brushed, etc. on the trim through-out the house?

'oops' and 'goof off' often will remove latex paint. You can find them most anywhere paint is sold.

If that doesn't do the job you can gently scrape the woodwork. If you mar the finish, just lightly sand and revarnish.

Oops! is marketed as being able to remove latex paint but not harming any oil based finish underneath. Based on that, I would try it first.
