Removing Spray Paint Overspray

Stupidly I thought all was protected when I used some spray paint inside. Little did I know that the overspray traveled that far. Is there a way of safely cleaning the overspray from the carpet and furniture (wood and fabric)? Thanks so much for any advice, besides never using spray paint indoors again!

Things you'll need:

wood board
clean rags
olive oil
turpentine
detergent
terry cloths
plastic putty knife
pressure washer
wire brush
lacquer thinner
fabric

Step 1 Lay the fabric flat on top of a wood board.

Step 2 Apply a few drops of olive oil to the over-spray.

Step 3 Allow the olive oil to soak into the over-spray for four minutes. Scrape away the over-spray with a plastic putty knife.

Step 4 Wipe the olive oil from the fabric with a rag dampened with turpentine.

Step 5 Wash the fabric with dish-washing detergent.

Brick and cement

Step 1 Remove as much of the over-spray as possible with a pressure washer.

Good luck.
