Try Goof Off, Motsenbocker Latex Paint Remover, Goo Gone, and Oops! are all products designed for this. Acetone may work as well (especially for nail polish!). Make sure you first test an area that will not be seen (under a piece of furniture or in a closet) to make sure the solvent or cleaner will not attack the carpet.

How do you remove old English oil polish from panling to paint?

Unfortunately, because Old English is an oil based product with dark stain in it, you will not be able to remove it from the paneling. However, if you are wanting to paint the paneling, the best thing to do would be to apply a 'stain killer' to the paneling first, such as Kilz, available at your local hardware or paint store. This also works well to block any 'stain' that is on your walls before painting, such as lipstick, ink, pencil, etc. and prevent the stain from bleeding through the new paint.
