The first step to knowing how to treat the paint is knowing if itís water-based or oil-based paint. The easiest way to find out about this is to read the label on the paint can. Look for the clean-up instructions. If itís water-based, the directions for clean-up will include instructions for using soap and warm water. If itís oil-based the directions will tell you to turn paint thinner or mineral spirits and use Goof Off is a commercially-available cleanser that you can find at most home improvement stores. Itís great at removing dried-on paint.

Vinegar mixed with bicarb and borax will make any floor shine. Hope that helps!

Depending on the type of floor it has fallen on you may be able to scrape it off with a razor (on tile for example).

I found that a magic eraser worked well for small paint stains on vinyl flooring.

On carpet I have no experience removing paint.

Removing Wet Water-Based Paints

You Will Need:

  • Clean cloths or paper towels
  • Mild soap
  • Water
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Shredded paper or cat litter (for larger spills)
The Removal Process:

  1. Start by wiping up as much of the spilled paint as possible. If the spill is large, contain it first by covering it with cat litter or shredded paper.
  2. Next wipe the area with damp paper towels. Most of the wet paint will be easily removed from vinyl flooring with just water-moistened paper towels.
  3. After most of the paint has been wiped up, mix mild soap with water in a bucket.
  4. Moisten clean cloths with soap and water mixture and wipe off the remaining paint.
  5. If there is still paint on the floor, wet a soft cloth with rubbing alcohol and rub it on the paint area. If the stain is persistent, it will be helpful to moisten the rag and lay it on top of the stained area for a couple of minutes before trying to remove.
  6. Repeat the above steps until all of the paint is removed.
Removing Wet Oil-Based Paints

Oil based paints can be very difficult to remove.
You Will Need:

  • Soft cloths
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • Liquid wax
  • Superfine steel wool pad
  • Water
  • Mild soap
  • Bucket
The Removal Process:

  1. Begin by wiping up as much of the paint as possible with a damp clean cloth.
  2. Moisten a cloth with rubbing alcohol and place it on top of the stain for several minutes.
  3. Wipe with the moistened cloth to remove the remaining paint.
  4. If paint still remains, dip the superfine steel wool pad into the liquid wax.
  5. Gently scrub the area to remove the remaining paint.
  6. When all of the paint is removed, mix water with mild soap in a bucket.
  7. Use the soft cloths to wipe down the entire area and remove all of the cleaning products.
  8. Allow the floor to dry. When it completely dry, apply a coat of wax for protection.

To remove paint stains from floor. You have to use vinegar mixed with bicarb. Using this method you clean your floor with safely. I give you advise always use organic product to clean carpet and floors.

Take some rubbing brush or some cloth and pour some amount of vinegar solution and it really works...

Paint stains are the most common problem encountered on daily basis. So not just paint stains, there are few solutions that will wipe off every hard stain that is ruining the aesthetics of your home and clothings.
1. Use alcohol and a microfiber cloth to wipe off hard stains.
2. Hard acetone and a cloth to easily remove those stains.
3. Use Kerosene and a cloth to remove paint from your clothes and on the floor.
4. Use Vinegar, a brush, bicarb and a cloth for the finishing wipe off process.

Hope this will help.
