I moved into an apartment where some of the tiles were painted over, while others where left as they originally where made. The tiles are mulit colored and textured. Does anyone have a suggestion of how I can remove the paint without damaging the original tile.

If they are ceramic tiles you could use paint remover on them, but be sure to try a samll spot to be sure it does not damage the tiles.

PEEL AWAY 7 can be used on this removalproject and will NOT discolor the tile in any way.

you can also just scrape the paint off with a razor blade if the tiles were glossy.
