    What type of paint spilled? you might try a paint stripper agent. put a stack of paper toweling Under the spot. Try a few drops..remove cloth and see f it's helping. If not dedicate these clothing for the messy chores.

    Try rubbing alcohol and then scrubbing with a soft brush and Dawn . Wash in cold water but DON'T DRY. If its not all gone, repeat the process until it is gone.

    I have sometimes been able to remove dried acrylic paint with fabric softener like Downey, by applying it full-strength and working it in with my fingernails...then washing as usual with laundry detergent like Tide.

    I use fabric softener on my paint brushes for this...have gotten acrylic paint out of a cotton shirt by working liquid softrner, like Downey, into fabric with my fingernail.

    Goof Off can work too. Just make sure you rinse and wash right away or that can leave a stain. You let it soak for a minute and then gentle scrap the paint off. I just used this to get paint off one of my daughter's "Pink" sweatshirts. Goop Hand Cleaner is also a good one to try. Use this all the time on the weird stains my husband gets on his clothes. He's a firefighter
