How to Clean Paint off of Formica

If you’re in the process of painting your kitchen, bathroom office or bathroom and you get paint on your Formica, how do you clean it off? I mean after it is dry and has hardened, what is the best way to remove it from the plastic laminates surface? Obviously, if it’s wet and you notice it, wipe it off right away. But if the spill is older and hardened it can be removed with lacquer thinner.

I would avoid trying to scrape it off. Instead, keep wiping the paint off with a rag saturated with lacquer thinner. Eventually with persistence the solvent will clean all of it off of the plastic laminate. This method works well for removing paint off of mica.  You can also try mineral spirits.
