Likewise, people ask, how do you get dried water based paint out of carpet?
How to remove water-based paint stains from carpet:
- If the paint stain is still wet, simply blot the spot with a wet paper towel - don't scrub, just blot.
- If the paint stain is dry, use hot water and a little bit of dish detergent.
- Once the paint is softened, use a knife or pin to scrape the paint stain.
Paint spills on the carpet are bad enough when the stain is still wet; but when the paint dries, you face an even more difficult cleaning problem. Rubbing alcohol works to remove both water- and oil-based paint, but for best results, you also need to use soap, water and turpentine on oil-based paint.
