The only ways that I know of is to either sand them or use some type of paint stripper.

I just painted the kitchen, but some of the paint is on my cabinets. What should I use to remove the paint? Just around the outer part of the cabinets.

Latex or oil paint?

OOPS sold in most hardware or paint stores removes some latex paints without harming wood finish.

Goo-be gone at Wal-mart or WD40 both work great. It is worth a try. Good luck. I use it when I paint which is a lot. (04/21/2008)

Test an inconspicuous area, but lighter fluid works.
Have you tried just a green scrubby, dish soap, and elbow grease? Sometimes that will work. Also, stuff called Goof Off. It's just like the Oops stuff Patti mentioned.
Good luck!

If the paint is fairly fresh, but dry, what I have done is wrap a thin rag around a putty knife or flat screwdriver and gently rub it off. That allows you to get very close to the painted surface and create a neat edge. It won't work if you've let the paint cure too long. (04/24/2008)

Ammonia or for us ladies, lemon ammonia. (10/12/2008)
