WSW.

 

The best way to get paint off the hinges without messing the paint up around it, is to pull the hinge. If it is latex paint on the hinge, soak it in hot water with dishwashing detergent in it. If it is an oil based paint, soaking it in a lacquer thinner will get it off.

 

Small amounts of latex paint may be removed with the product "Goof Off", which is available at Home Depot. It lifts latex paint, but has little effect on oil paints.

 

If it is latex paint and you have a lot of hinges to clean up, put them in a crock pot over night. Latex paints don't do well in hot, wet environments.

 

Hope this has helped.
