Removing Paint From Carpet

My cat knocked over a quart of white bathroom paint onto my brown carpet, I was not home at the time it happened, so it had dried some by the time I discovered this. Any suggestions as to how I might be able to remove this paint without futher damage to the carpet?


Thanks in advance!

Try spraying WD-40 on it. Wipe with clean cloth until all paint is gone. Then, clean the area with carpet cleaner. (09/21/2004)

Greased Lightening will remove paint from most anything. I have used this in the past and it works well. (01/20/2005)

If your carpet is nylon, go to your local home depot and get this stuff called Goof Off professional strength in the spray or squeeze can, apply it with a toothbrush and gently scrub, paint will dissapear as if it was never there. also works great on clothes. (11/13/2005)
