For just small mistakes, try some Goof Off. Test in an inconspicuous spot first.
Removing bulk or large areas of paint, a paint remover/stripper would be required.

If the woodwork is stained a scotch pad works well. These are pads safe to use on teflon (won't scratch).

Goof Off is one of the most frequently recommended products for removing dried latex paint off wood surfaces. The best deal is to always carry a wet rag for wiping paint off surfaces as you go. This rag should be rinsed frequently. A little bucket of water and a rag can travel with you as you paint around a room. Keep the wet rag on the top step of your ladder so it will always be handy. When you move the ladder, rinse out the rag in the bucket of water. When painting molding, it is best to use a trim brush (slanted). It takes a steady hand. After a while you get the hang of it. I never use tape, although it is recommended for keeping paint off surfaces adjacent to where you are painting. All it takes is a steady hand, a high quality trim brush, and high quality paint.
