Removing Washable Paint from Carpet

– Blot all excess moisture with a paper towel. Blot from the outside in and don’t use too much pressure, as that can push the stain deeper.
– Dried paint should be scraped up as much as possible.
– In a spray bottle or container, mix 1 cup warm water 1/2 tsp. dish soap.
– Spray mixture onto the blemish, and gently work out the stain with a clean cloth. Do not scrub as this could make the mess bigger, and push the stain deeper, along with compromising the texture of the fibers.
– Repeat as necessary, until stain has been removed.
– Place a clean, old towel on top of the area, and walk on the mess, carefully walk along the area to lift up detergents and remaining stain.
– Rinse area with cool water in a spray bottle, or sponge cool water to the area, and be sure to blot thoroughly.
– If the spot should distort to a brownish color, mix 2 part water with 1 part white vinegar, and sponge the mixture onto the area, and repeat as necessary.
