    How to get Rustoleum paint off tile/carpet/couch/pants?

    I spray painted a birdhouse for my mom for Christmas (she's a nature lover and all her birdhouses got destroyed by a huge windstorm a few months ago). It's so cold and humid here that the paint didn't dry and where I was spraying outside stayed wet for 2 days... Apparently the dog walked through it because I have green footprints on the tile floor, the carpet, the couch, and my SO's jeans where he put his paws on his leg.

    Any idea how to get it out?? The carpet, not a huge deal, the jeans not really either because they're his work pants, but the couch and the tile are the biggies. Especially the couch... my SO's pride and joy that he spent much too much money on when he was a bachelor... it's fabric if that helps.

    I was told nail polish remover or rubbing alcohol, but neither worked.

    My SO is now calling me a homewrecker lol...

    There used to be a product available at home improvement stores called "Oops" that was a mild paint remover that got paint off fabric without damaging the fabric. I don't know if they still make it, because it was 10 years ago that I used it to get paint off a used loveseat I bought when I first got my place. You can ask the paint people at Lowes or Home Depot if they know of any similar product, but do a test spot on an inconspicuous spot first.

    For the tile, is it vinyl, ceramic or a natural surface? I'd be very cautious about using chemicals or harsh abrasives on vinyl, but you can try using a scouring pad to scrub the area. If it's only one or two tiles vinyl tiles, it might be easiest to replace them if you have spares.

    they're ceramic tiles. i'll try scrubbing them, they have a matte finish and a splotchy pattern that hides stains and dirt well, so i may get away with removing it from there

    i'll look for that oops product! if that doesn't work, well i guess we have to just flip the cushion over

    You could try a paint thinner, my bf spilt super glue on my brand new black coffee table, and I went and got a paint thinner and it took it off
