not good to use paint thinner, you risk damaging the plastic. The only way to realy get the stuff off safely that i know of is to use dish soap and a plastic stripper.

I painted over plastic and vinyl. Most paint products have contact information on the back i.e. website, e-mail, phone number. Tell them what type of paint you used or the product code and what you painted. They will try to suggest which chemical to use on it.
