No matter how careful you are when painting, chances are you’ll end up with drips of paint on the floor. If you catch it while the paint is still wet, you can just wipe it up with a damp paper towel. But, if the paint has already dried, try using inexpensive acne cleansing pads to scrub away the hardened paint.

Tip: To be sure it won’t damage the finish on your hardwood floor, we recommend testing the acne cleansing pad in an inconspicuous spot first.

I scratched my wood floor moving furniture unfortunately I had old English scratch cover for dark wood which was my old house did not realize it and covered the scratches with the dark old English scratch cover am I able to remove The stain from the scratches without damaging the floor or doing the whole area

  2. I used this tip and it worked very well, thank you! Now there is no longer bright blue and yellow paint splotches in our daughters bedroom.

  3. There were so many ads covering this video that I could only see little blotches. Waste of my time and so aggravating! Will not be back to this site.
