How to Remove Oil-Based Paint From Hardwood Floors
Remove oil-based paint from hardwood floors with acetone. Oil-based paint can be a challenge to remove since most hardwood floors have an oil-based finish. Chemicals that remove the oil-based paint are capable of removing the finish on your floor as well; you might have to reapply the varnish on your hardwood floor after the paint is removed. It is always best to try to remove oil-based paint with a damp cloth, the moment the accident occurs. Acetone is available in hardware stores. For small areas, try nail polish remover with acetone.
