Dried Latex Paint in Carpet
 
Looking for some advice in getting dried Latex paint out of carpet. Any suggestions?

hi

Water mixed with a little fabric softener in a spray bottle and damped area then tap (lightly beat) on the surface with a dowel or something like a screwdriver handle. The water mixture should help break the surface hold so the paint can be knock off of the fibers. work with is a bit and see if it works in your application. I have gotten some stains that the pros already tried to get out repeatedly. It is a bit of work though. (I got this idea when I was at a dry cleaner and saw them beating on a stain)
