Try soaking it in Simple Green for a few days. Or you can take a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol and rub away but the down side to that is how many q-tips you'll end up using and how long they last. And the fresher the paint the easier it will come off.

How 'hard' did you rub the q-tips over the painted areas?? The original Pine-Sol would do the trick also, just check then every day until the paint comes off. Should take more than a few days.
Also housing costs have gone thought the roof here and it does not look to be stopping any time soon.

If it's months old rubbing with a Qtip soaked in alcohol would take forever, either soak it in rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol or wet a paper towel and set it on the paint, wrap saran wrap around it to keep the alcohol from evaporating.

I recover old acrylic paint bottles by soaking in soapy water for a few days, softens it up no matter how old, so it's just a matter of time and if you want the entire thing cleaned of paint.
Does it matter what kind of soap???
