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.

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)

Painted carpet


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.
