It can be disheartening to realize that your carpet has a paint stain on it. If one of your projects involves spray paint and some of it ends up on the carpet, a method is available to clean it. This technique has proven to be effective in removing the latex and lacquer paints that are usually found in spray paint cans.
Remove as much of the paint as possible from a fresh stain by blotting it with a paper towel.
Apply some rubbing alcohol to a clean white cloth. Blot the stain, continuing until the stain is gone or until no more paint is picked up on the cloth. Do not scrub back and forth; blot and rub in one direction at a time.
Place several layers of paper towels over the area just cleaned, set a brick on them, and let it sit for a few minutes. The towel will soak up any paint that may be wicking up from the backing. Repeat this process until the towels are no longer absorbing anything.
Remove the brick and paper towels and allow the carpet to air dry.
