Arrghhhh,.my handyman did a gret job in spray painting our retro metal kitchen cabinets. They looked terrible and now look like they are brand new,..sprayed with Rustoleum gloss white.

The problem is he didn't mask/cover everything,..didn't realize it was getting all over,.lots of fine spray on many other surfaces,..traveled quite a ways from where he had put the drop cloths,..

"GOOF OFF" is good about removing it from facets, sink etc,..but it evaporates almost immediately..not too good for large areas,kinda expensive the those small cans.

So I was thinking about using xylene or acetone,..the big problem is parts of the allure has a fair amount of this overspray, you think either chemical will harm the Allure?

Test it on a scrap piece, if you have one.

And, if the painting was very, very recent, such as today or yesterday, a damp rag and good old elbow grease might work wonders.....

I think goof off may actually be lacquer thinner

I saw someone post a longggg time ago that they kicked over a can of Goof Off in a hallway of Allure & as they wiped it up they wiped off the top layer of the floor. I've always been scared to try Goof Off on Allure for that reason.

Usually I use a fingernail or a wet rag with plenty of elbow grease but overspray is a different kettle of fish altogether. I would just start with scrubbing with water. May take awhile.

If you use good off and leave it on for any length of time it will damage allure. If you rub it on for a short period of time it will remove the paint, but first test it on a scrap of allure.

Goof off if left on allure will cause bubbles and lift the surface paint of allure.

You could try mineral spirits. Test it first to see if any damage occurs.

I did this very thing. Spray painted the outside of a claw foot tub. Left the door open to the room where we had just had the oak floors redone a few days before. We had placed rosin paper around the perimeter of the room because we were finishing painting the walls. A week after we spray painted the tub we removed the rosin paper to discover a green tinged square on my freshly finished floors. I spent hours cleaning the green haze off the new polyurethane. It was successful, though.

Earlier today we took some paint splatters off of Allure with acetone. Wet down paper towels and wipe it away. If there are big blobs use a razor blade to scrape it first.
