'Removing small amounts of dried paint from your carpet is as simple as it is ingenious!
(Keeping paint off my clients carpets is a big deal. I use masking tape tucked down the edges, then a 6 inch wide strip of paper, then absorbent drop sheets on the floor, then plastic wrapped around large furniture.)
BUT (and I hate this) every few years a wee drop of paint gets onto the carpet. And usually it dries before Inotice.
Sooooooo this is how you fix it....
Take a small par of nail scissors (the curved ones) and give the carpet a haircut. Only take off the fibres that have paint on them and take off as little as possible. The curved scissors will take a tiny dip out of the carpet and after a bit of fluffing, you'll never know.
I've been drawing and painting since I was a kid. I've studied art and design and have worked in visual areas my whole life. Now I'm a house painter!
