I had a room skimmed yesterday and although the plasterer did a cracking job, the woodwork (last painted about 7 years ago with Dulux oil based Satinwood) has some lines and blobs of plaster on it.
What is the "pro's" recommended way of removing these prior to me "prepping" and re-painting with a coat of Sikkens BL primer followed by 2 coats of (lovely !) Sikkens BL Satura ?
Many thanks.

Baby wipes will get it off, when it's dry the bulk of it will just scrape off with a finger nail.

Sand it down after scraping any big bits off then wipe down and paint, that’s what I do

Gently take big blobs off with a scraper and then any residue will come off easily when you sand as normal.

There are quite a few plasterers in my area and I have followed behind every single one of them. I only recommend two of them to my customers because the others leave too much mess for me to clear up. If only some tradesmen knew the damage they do to their reputation by "leaving it for the deccy to sort..."

Thanks for all the most useful replies, appreciated.

Can't understand why plasterer's don't properly "mask" for which I would be quite happy to pay extra.

I've never met or followed one that does. To be honest most trades who aren't doing a final finishing job leave a mess.

Imagine a decorator leaving splatters of paint and saying "it's ok, cleaner will get that"
