Latex paint from tile I just finished painting my own bathroom. Just use a putty knife on a slight tilt and carefully push on the paint spots (don't rush this job), then wipe… clean. As for the latex paint on the grout, be sure you have waited a couple of weeks, wet it down, and then use "Scotch Brite" pads to gently go over the grout. Do not push on the pad too much. Latex, as you know, can be taken off with water. I use warm, soapy water to do this. More advice from Wiki s Contributors: . Keeping it wet and warm is a big plus, especially if it is fairly recent. Try to use a scraper that is plastic if possible. Sometimes an abrasive handcleaner and a stiff plastic bristle brush will do the trick. . This site has professional tile guys that have helped me in other areas: http://www.johnbridge.com There are products on the market that were originally created to specifically meet this type of need.Today they are used for a wide variety of cleaning and removing purposes however they still do a great job for removing dried dripped or spilled latex paint from finished,painted or glazed surfaces.The two most well-known brands are "Oops" and "Goof-Off".These products are sold at most hardware or home improvement stores and are also sometimes found in the cleaning aisles of grocery stores and department stores. If your spills are on vinyl flooring,carpet or other similar surfaces be sure to read the label carefully as these products can sometimes damage those types of materials.If you feel you have questions shop for these products at businesses that offer knowledgeable saleshelp to assist you.
Well I had the same problem before. A little bleach fixed the problem. --------- It depends on the kind of paint that's on the metal. Latex paint will come off a number of …ways: 1. Warm water and dish soap with a VERY soft scrubbing pad often works. 2. Rubbing alcohol or ammonia will also work and are fairly gentle on the underlying metal. 3. A brand of stuff called "Goof-Off," which you can get at any hardware store or Walmart. The stuff smells terrible, and it can be rough on the underlying surface, so use with caution.
I'm using Mr. Muscle cleaning fluid and using a steel wool cleaner to rub the paint off. It does get the paint off the grout, but you need to be careful not to scratch the til…es. We're painting the tiles afterwards so not too worried about damage. There is a product from Australia that is a broom on mop off grout cleaner no nasties www.pinkstuff.com.au. It gets paint off tiles I am a messy painter and I just made a solution let it sit and then mopped the paint splotches off and ended up with immaculate tiles and grout.
My dad does tile and i help him out every once and a while with it.. and one time something similar to this happened and we had to get a chisel and hammer and scrape the mark …out of the grout.. of course there would be a little hole so we had to use some more of our left over grout to fill it in... hope this helped!
You can buy a little scraper tool that has a pointed or 'v'shaped end to clean the gap between the tiles without damaging them. after that its a matter of re-grouting. Make su…re the area is dry first - rubbing alcohol works well.
Grafitti remover is available at hardware stores. Products like acetone and plain old elbow grease may remove it as well.
You remove oil based paint on tile floors by using a strong detergent mixed with water and a soft cloth
Who in there right mind would ever paint a fieldstone fireplace in the first place?
no coz the coular inside the rocks well mold and it the mold will come out later after like 2 years
Tough one, as grout is like a micro hard sponge. Latex is water based, so if you use hot soapy water and apply it to grout area and let it sit for 3-5 minutes, then use a to…oth brush / hard bristles and scrub it with that kind of brush in all directions, it should help. Rinse and Repeat until satisfied. Hope this helps. Ã =)
It is probably cement, not grout. Chip out any that is loose or discolored--probably using a well-aimed hammer and chisel. Then replace with cement that is made for patching s…ince it dries harder.

The Grouting Intensity Number (GIN) involves the energy expended, which is grouting pressure P, and the grout volume injected V. The product PV is called the Grouting Intensit…y Number or GIN. The volume may be unitized to the length of the grouting intervals as liters/m (or interchangeably as weight of cement injected in kg/m, since for moderately thick mixes the numerical values are similar within 5 to 10 percent). The pressure has been used traditionally as bar, resulting in P-V or GIN units being bar liter/m

The answer to this has to be separated into categories: 1. A few drops spattered while painting the walls. Use Goof-Off or a similar latex paint remover, a rough clean clot…h, and a toothbrush. You might want to use a razor scraper first to gently remove what you can before going for chemicals. You will probably have to go over the painted areas twice. 2. Really extensive paint spatter or roller goofs. Same as #1 but definitely use the razor knife first. You may want to switch between two products such as paint brush cleaner or Motsenbacher's Lift Off for Latex (available at Lowe's). If the paint includes oil-based, enamel, etc., you will have to use the equivalent product for oil-based paints. Pre-wetting with a moist tower covering the area overnight will sometimes help before you get to the removal. 3. For brick that has layers of paint over it, it gets a little harder. A pressure washer can do the job outdoors but may take out the mud mortar. Slow, careful work with a hammer and an old wood chisel can peel the paint indoors. Then you will have to use a real gel paint stripper (Readi-Strip Pro at Home Depot), heavy gloves, eye protection, ventilation, etc.

VERY difficult. -It's easier to paint over it with special grout paint.

Unless your grout was well sealed, that may be impossible. Unsealed grout will soak up paint to the extent it may be necessary to either remove the grout or paint over it with… special grout paint.

If it's a latex paint, a product like Goof-off or Ooops works well to remove the paint. Krud-Kutter is a spray cleaner that removes dried latex paint and is available at many …paint stores and home centers. If your dealing with oil-based paints, try scraping with a razor, or if there is too much paint to scrape off, try using a citrus based stripper. Be sure to test first on an obscure area before doing the entire surface.
