A very helpful hint I hope you never have to use...

I reallyreallyreallyreally hope none of you ever need to know about this. 
 I reallyreallyreallyreally had always sort of hoped I would never need to know about it, either.
But, just supposing you ever find yourself in the position to wonder "how in the heck am I going to get a quart of oil-based paint off my newly refinished hardwood floors"  I'm here with the answer.

Olive oil. Straight up olive oil on a rag will get it right up.  

 And thank goodness for that knowledge is all I can say.

Hmm. Now that's an interesting bit of info. I never woulda thunk it!

And most likely, at some point in my life, I WILL need to utilize this tip!
