Just have a couple questions. There are some spots with paint spilled. What is the best way to get that up without sanding? I'm not ready to sand and totally refinish yet - I just want to make it look nice. I tried a 3M green scrub sponge pad with water (you can kind of see the pad in the picture in the area I did). Paint comes up but is not efficient - takes too long and gums up quick. I'm am assuming it is a latex paint because of the gummy and gooey consistency that builds up on the pad. Is there a chemical that would break the paint down much quicker? Paint thinner? Also there is a darker stain in the middle of the room. Is there anyway to get rid of that, or at least try to without sanding? This will have an area rug over it. Like I said, I'd like to clean it as good as possible and make it shine without doing a complete sand/refinish job yet.
Thanks for the help!
