Removing Drips of Wall Paint from Ceramic Tile Floors

If you have ceramic tile floors and you paint the walls, there is a good chance that you will get paint on the ceramic tile at some point. When you do this, the process of removing the paint is not difficult but it will take a little bit of work on your part. Here are the basics of how to remove drips of wall paint from ceramic tile.

Scrape the Paint

One of the good things about ceramic tile is that it is hard and flat in many cases. This means that you should be able to scrape the majority of the paint drips off of the tile. In order to do this, you can use a putty knife. Take the putty knife and angle it. Then apply pressure to the paint and scrape it up. 

Scouring Pad

You may also need to remove the paint with a scouring pad. If the putty knife does not work or if you get paint on the grout, you can use a scouring pad to get it up. Put some soapy water on the spot and then use a scouring pad to try to remove it. In most cases, this should remove the paint.
