    Hi Jay Jay, Take some murphys oil soap and put it straight on the paint spot and rub it around gently as to not hurt the fabric. Let it sit for a little bit and soak in. Rub it again to loosen it up and to see how fast it is loosening it up. Once you feel it has loosened it you can wash it.

    De-Solv-It degreaser has worked well for me. The sooner you treat it the better.

    Spray the painted area thoroughly with De-Solv-It. Let it set for 10 30 minutes. Use the edge of a spoon to gently scrape the paint off once De-Solv-It loosens it from the fabric fiber. Scrub clean with Dawn dish soap, rinse and launder as usual. Good luck.

    Goof off works well for dried in paint. Before it's fully cured, latex comes off with a little soap and water and scrubbing.
