Try cleaning the area with lemon essential oil. Can be found at a craft store.

This afternoon my teenage son came home after helping a friend paint his grandmothers fence frantic because he got white paint on his bright purple name brand pants. I told him I didn't think there was anything we could do, but of course mama had to try. I went to my old go to impossible stain remover and voila, worked like a charm so I knew I had to share! I used 91% rubbing alcohol & a little patience. I work in small sections applying enough alcohol to lightly saturate the area & then I blot it with a clean towel (rag). There no color fading or piling!

I brushed the back of my Eddie Brauer down feather long coat on flat finished white paint 7 months ago. It's made of 52% nylon, 32% polyester, 15% cotton. I used shout triple action, it's a stain remover. I did a section at a time and it worked. Don't saturate or put too little just enough to cover the stain. Wait a few seconds then use a dry paper towel with pressure and wipe back and forth. I noticed it somehow turned the paint into a chalky substance that it was easy to scrape off when somewhat dry using my finger nail. In some areas you will have to repeat the process especially heavy stain area. Note: the bottle will state "Dry paint may be impossible for any stain treater to remove." I tried it anyway based on recommendation from another user on this website.
