While I was painting trim, I somehow got a nice (white) drip running
on the wallpaper a few inches away and because of the wild (white &
beige) pattern in the paper I didn't see it until it dried. Is there
any safe way to lift the drip without damaging the wallpaper? It's
about a week old. I don't have any spare wallpaper.
Just a follow-up and big thanks because the alcohol trick worked like
a charm to remove the week-old dried latex pain from the wallpaper! I
used simple CVS alcohol and just rubbed it gently with a soft rag and
then just kind of pushed the paint away with the edge of my
fingernail. Cleaned it up with some additional alcohol and you'd
never, ever know it was there... no stains... nothing.
Try the product called "Goof Off", available at Home Depot and lots of other
stores. It comes in a small can. It is very effective at removing dry
latex paint, but test first to be sure that it does not damage the
