We recently moved into a home that the previous owner had painted latex paint over oil-based paint without any bonding primer or preparation of any kind that we can tell. Does anyone have a good way to remove the latex without removing the oil-based paint? The oil-based paint is in good shape and fine. The latex is not sticking to the oil and peeled or nicks very easily. HELP!

I have used just detergent in the past to wash it away!
Good luck!

I just had this happen at my moms house. She just painted the entire thing on the inside. I was doing a patch up job on some drywall, and when I wet sanded the mud, I noticed that the latex was just peeling. All it took for her paint to be removed was a wet sponge and it peeled right off. I asked her if she used any primer or prep, she said, “nope!” Well, that said everything… lol.

Yes you can use detergent. It works and removes the stain easily.
