    Ideas on removing spilled latex paint

    I just purchased a used car that had been used as a work vehicle it looks like. One of the major issues is there is a nice big, about 1ft square, section of the rear seat and carpet that has had latex paint spilled on it and allowed to dry. What is the best way to get rid of this and restore the cloth/carpet to its former glory?

    Hot water and fabric shampoo, you will probably have to scrape it loose.

    This is a tough one, never had the experience of tackling that one. I would start of testing the area with different type of solutions. Steam would be my first option, since it would be the safest. Next would be an APC like AllClean+ and something stronger is needed maybe grime Reaper with combination of steam. Make sure to always test out in a small area first. Good luck.
