removing paint from carpet

What's the best method for removing interior paint from carpet?

I wasn't careful enough while painting and got some paint on my shoes that then got tracked on the carpet.

I mostly use Behr paint.

I know this is doityourself, but I have to tell you both to call a pro carpet cleaner, see what they say about it. It may need replacement.

I just finished a couple of painting projects (I'll never do that again), and googling around, I found one "recipe" that worked like a charm to get the paint out of my carpet, which was quite a bit ;-)

Mix:
1 Tablespoon dish detergent
1.5 Tablespoons vinegar
1 Quart (32 oz.) of warm-hot water

Gently mix up this stuff, and I kinda scraped the foam off the top so more foam than needed wouldn't get on the carpet. Blot enough of the mix until the spot is kind saturated, and then just keep blotting with a sponge. It won't look like much is coming up, but when you take a rag and blot it some more (don't rub), it'll come up (or at least it did for me).

I had dark brown interior paint on light blue carpet, and right after I used the rag to pull it up, I didn't see anymore brown!!

Hope this helps.
