I dropped 6 month ago latax paint on a wood bannister in my townhome. I have tried turpentine to remove paint and that failed I have tried stripping the paint of with a spray product from home depot and that failed .
Anyone have a suggestion should I use a gel stripping product I want to repaint the wood bannister after removing the paint .
The first time I used the stripping spray product all it did was leave a dull while color but still did not strip of the paint
Latex paint should be easily be removable with a product like "Goof Off" on a rag, or any good chemical stripper, if you have a lot to remove.
If you plan to repaint the bannister anyway, you could just sand the splattered paint area flat (if needed) and not bother to actually remove it, as it will be covered.
Was the banister bare wood or did it have a finish on it before the paint? I agree with Conrad goof off is the thing for dried latex. If it was bare oak you will have a challenge getting it out of the grain.
Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
