    Does anyone have a suggestion on a good way to remove some light spray paint from a Formica surface? In this case it is the surface of a shuffle alley machine, but I do have a few pitch and bats and rifle shooting games that may need a bit of the same done.....

    Try lacquer thinner. My work benches are all formica tops and I clean them with lacquer thinner all the time.

    But to be sure - just try a small unseen section first.

    I've used 2000 grit sandpaper before on bathroom Formica counter tops.

    gasoline will take it off, cleaned paint off several machines with a rag, gas, elbow grease. works great.

    Lift Off Spray Paint & Graffiti Remover from Home Depot. Water based and works. Or rubbing alcohol would probably be cheap and safe.

    old reliable- Maple syrup and a pancake. Put the syrup on he spot, wait 5 minutes, and use the pancake to mop it up and eat.

    Jk- so many different ways to do this posted...…..

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I tired goof off, works but super slow. Picked up some Citristrip to try next, and also trying some thinner and I've got novus on hand. Rubbing alcohol did next to nothing on this one. Shouldn't be too difficult or worrisome. It's just some over spray someone got on a puck bowler alley.
