Painted carpet
 
Careful as we could be, we still ended up with a few paint drops on the carpet. Anybody know a good carpet cleaning product that gets out paint? It's Behr latex paint.

Oops!
Uh...that's what it's called, I'm not saying oops you spilled paint lol
Oops! will get dry latex drips up

Sounds promising. Where can I find it?

Should be at your local paint shop or hardware store
I always have a bottle on hand-just in case ;)
... really, I do mean there is always a bottle of Oops! in my work van...it's on the list of things I won't do a job without

If it's alot of paint, you may need to steam clean the area after Oops!-ing it
But nothing fancy, just a Hoover Steam Vac-type deal (homeowner quality-not industrial)

If its just small drops, and there are not smeared into the carpet, use a fresh razor blade and slice them off.

If you use the Oops, or Goof Off, check in a hidden spot to make sure it won't take the carpet color with it.

Wife had already taken to the floor with the razor, but I thought maybe a solvent would be easier.

Thanks for all the advice.
