We recently built our house and in the process of having the trim stained/sealed the painter spilled poly on the ceramic floor tiles (we actually paid someone to paint because we wanted it done the "right way"). We have tried paint thinner which was recommended and it didn't work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I don't know the answer, but if you don't get any other responses, you might try looking at a container of the same type poly and read the label.
Another option is to contact the manufacturer.

I already answered this on the other FIX Up site. However, I think PEEL AWAY 7 should do your job. Do a test area first.

Thank you very much for the replies. As for the poly container, there wasn't much info for when it has dried. Sorry about posting on both bulletin boards, I wasn't sure if I was in the right place the first time. Thank you all again for your time.

Paint remover will get rid of it. Use the citric based stuff to avoid the fumes. What I'm wondering is why the painter didnt clean it up while it was still wet.
