My house was painted about 10 months ago but it wasn't cleaned up properly. Lots of paint left everywhere (see pics) on door knobs, frosted glass windows and door entry. I've tried using water-based turp (not much change) and methylated spirit (not much luck there, started turning the frosted glass slightly blue). What should I use to get rid of these unsightly stains and clean them up on each surface? And how should I do it for each surface? For eg, a paint scraper might help for the glass but how to scrub paint off on the circular door knobs?
Oh dear @shivs. Those photos look like a good advertisement for how important preparation is before painting and why you should always use painter's tape. It will save a lot of time and money.
Never fear, I'm sure the Workshop community will be happy to help with suggestions about removing the paint from the various surfaces.

That's a great video. Would be interesting to see if patterned windows are much different.
