Learn How to Clean Paint off of Your Carpet
If you are using a water based paint, and it is still wet, you are in luck. Simply use a wet paper towel and blot the paint repeatedly until it comes up. Make sure you don’t scrub or rub the paint. This will just push it into the fibers, and then you will have a bigger mess on your hands.
Latex paint takes a little more work to remove, but it is possible. Just like before, use a paper towel to blot up as much paint as possible. Then using a mild dishwashing detergent mixed with a little warm water, continue to blot up the paint working from the outside in.
Finally, there is oil paint. This can be quite difficult to remove from carpeting even if it is still wet. You will want to blot up any excess paint first. After all the excess is gone, mineral spirits or turpentine can be used to remove the paint that is left.
Unfortunately, this may not remove all of the paint, and you will need to contact a professional carpet cleaner for help.
