Removing paint from rubber

Can anyone tell me how to remove paint from the rubber trim? No one is able to help me here. When I bought my car the rubber trims were painted with the rest of the car. I have been told to only way to remove is to use a razor blade. There must be some stripper or something that will work without destroying the rubber.

Thanks

there are products like SEM # 39913 urethane bumper stripper that will strip the finish off .
the down side is that to get the paint to stick they may have sanded the rubber pieces .
if that was done and you just want them black raw rubber your kind of screwed .
how ever you could repaint them in some thing like a trim black after you strip them .

Ive had same problem ,

Quickest and easiest way is to use thinners on a rag and simply/carefully wipe the paint off, it will leave the rubber like new
