First Question: I recently bought a house and they put this awful carpet over the hardwood floor. So I ripped up the carpet and all the floors are in great condition. My problem is there are tons of strips around the base of the floor where they tacked the carpets. How do I remove them without scratching the finish? I tried a screwdriver with some tape around it, in a hidden area but it still scratched it.
Second Question: They painted some stensils on some of the ceramic tiles in the kitchen. Is there and easy way to remove the paint without damaging the tile?

first answer. Nope .. the tack strip is in and down steady. You will need a pry bar .. and some elbow grease. you can fill the holes in with putty .. and clean up the scratches with some old english . Second answer. Yeah .. have you tried some mineral spirits? Paint thinner? Try that first.
