HOW TO REMOVE PAINT FROM CARPET
When you’re painting in your house, the last thing you want to do is spill paint on your carpet. But if paint drops manage to drip down on to your carpet, stay calm, there is a solution.
(Remember to always do a spot removal test on a portion of carpet that is less visible.)
How To Remove Water-Based Paint Stains From Your Carpet:
If the paint stain is still wet, simply blot the spot with a wet paper towel to remove as much paint as possible- don’t rub, just blot. Keep changing to a clean spot on the towel.
Mix 1 cup of warm water with 1 teaspoon of mild dishwashing liquid. Wet a towel with the solution.
Work from the outside of the paint stain to the inside, gently blotting the stain. Keep changing to a clean area of the towel. Repeat until the paint is removed. Blot up moisture with dry towel.
Rinse with a small amount of cold water. With a dry towel soak up any excess moisture.
If the paint stain is dry, use 1 cup hot water and 1 teaspoon of mild dishwashing soap. Pour a small amount on the stain and let it sit for a few minutes to soften the paint.
Once the paint is softened, use a butter knife to gently scrape the paint off. Continue to add more solution as you scrape.
If the paint is still not softening, consider using a handheld steamer while you scrape to eventually remove the paint stain from the carpet.
How To Remove Latex Paint Stains From Your Carpet:

How To Remove Oil-Based Paint Stains From Your Carpet:
If the paint stain is dry, you’ll want to use a steamer to soften the paint. Apply steam directly to the stain. Simultaneously pick at the paint stain with a needle or a pin to try and break it up and pull out the paint. Continue until stain is removed, working gently with the carpet fibers to avoid damage to your carpet.
