getting paint off porous tiles

Any ideas how to get paint off porous tiles?
The slate/tiles were existing in the house we bought, if they were sealed I don't think they are anymore and I have a few paint drops I cannot get off, I tried sugar soap to no avail

Welcome to the forums!

What type of paint? Products like 'goof off' and 'oops' will dissolve dried latex. It will take something stronger for oil base coatings, probably lacquer thinner. Always test a hidden area first to make sure it won't harm the tile. Sometimes careful scraping [using soap for a lubricant] is the best way to remove dried paint.
