I got white latex paint on my favorite blue crop pants. I tried scrubbing with several stain removal products. It still is in the fabric. Is there any hope left? The pants are still wet from scrubbing if that helps any.

Try plain, clear ammonia. Not the cleaners "containing" ammonia. Pour on spot, wait a minute, scrub with old toothbrush. Best done outdoors of course.
How do I get dry latex paint off a cotton jacket?
Ordinarily, I would have said you can't. However, I have seen a product advertised called Motsenbocker's Lift Off for artist's acrylic paint, which should work as well on latex -- very similar stuff. I haven't tried it. Here is the website
My wife was painting a fence out in our back yard area, and didn't notice until sometime later she had gotten some paint on her blouse.
The paint is a water based outdoor paint used for painting such things as a fence or other wooden material. The paint has dried on her blouse, and we are wondering what is the best way to trying to remove it from her blouse.
She suggested using the product "Disolve-It" which is a citrus based stain, etc. type remover, but I am afraid that it might set the paint into the material.

Although water based, latex paint can be a challenge to remove from clothing especially after it has dried. This is a page about removing latex paint stains on jeans.
