Acrylic paint is plastic-based paint, and it can be quite tricky to remove it. It is also difficult to break down its pigment; hence it is essential that you act on it as quickly as possible.
Use Dish Soap: Dish soap helps clean every stubborn stain, including paint. But before you use it directly on the stain, first prepare a dish soap solution.
Use Acetone: Acetone, popularly known as nail paint remover, is a liquid solvent that can break down and dissolve filthy stain marks and acrylic paint spills.
Use White Vinegar: As an alternative to the above-mentioned methods, you can also use white vinegar to get rid of acrylic paint stains on your carpet.
Use Baking Soda: To use it, sprinkle a very thick layer of baking soda solution to cover the stain completely and let it sit for a few minutes.
Rubbing Alcohol/Acetone/Nail Polish Remover: The first step to remove dried acrylic paint from the carpet is to remove the dried paint using a putty knife, a butter knife, or a similar object.
Vinegar: The acidic properties of vinegar help in dissolving and getting rid of the paint.
Glycerin: Glycerin solution can break the dried acrylic paint stain so that you can easily wipe it off with a clean cloth.
Hydrogen Peroxide: If the acrylic paint on your carpet is too stubborn and does not come off with any cleaning methods, then you can use Hydrogen Peroxide as a last resort.
While following any of the methods to remove acrylic paint from your carpet, make sure you always dab the stain and never scrub it.
