Default how to take off pin stripes?

I just was curious of any trick to take off pin stripes that have been lightly painted on? my dads friend said oven cleaner but it doesnt seem to work to great, any other ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I have used easy off oven cleaning when I detailed. Spray it let it soak for 5 mins and wipe it off. WEAR GLOVES THOUGH! repeat it until it comes off

If the Easy-Off isn't working -- try denatured alcohol (any normal hardware store, may also be called Methylated Spirits).

Most of the wet-brush stuff is acrylic so ... that why either the Easy-Off or Denatured Alcohol should work.

If you're getting and fade with the Easy-Off, I'd stay with it and offer several applications (as Clinton posted); it can take quite a few for heavy wet-brush work.
