I hate when hinges are painted. I was looking for a non toxic way to remove paint from hinges. The previous homeowner painted all of the hinges in the house. The end result was pretty good and no more paint on the hinges. Take hinges and screws off the doors. Put them in a two quart crock pot with a little Dawn. Cook overnight. Using a kitchen sponge toothbrush and wooden skewer get the paint off the hinges. It melts right off. Put hinges and screws back on the door.
