How to Get Puffy Paint Out of a Carpet

When puffy paint comes in contact with carpet, it quickly adheres to the fibers and leaves a troublesome stain. When dealing with puffy paint, remove it as soon as possible. The longer the craft paint sits on the carpet, the more likely a permanent stain develops. If possible, wipe fresh puffy paint off the carpet fibers with a damp paper towel as soon as it lands on the floor.

Things You'll Need

  • Butter knife
  • Paper towels
  • Container
  • Dish soap
  • Spoon
  • White cloths
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Towel

Scrape the excess puffy paint carefully off the carpet with the blunt edge of a butter knife. Wipe the paint off the butter knife with a paper towel after each pass.

Pour 2 cups of lukewarm water in a container, and mix 1 tbsp. of dish soap in the water. Dip a white cloth in the soapy solution, and blot the remaining puffy paint until it's gone. Continue if the paint remains.

Apply several drops of rubbing alcohol to a clean, white cloth until it's well-saturated. Blot the remaining puffy paint stains with the cloth in a vigorous motion until you remove all the paint from the carpet.

Remove the rubbing alcohol residue from the carpet by blotting with a damp cloth. Then, pat the carpet dry with a clean towel.
