Default Paint drop on fabric couch

It happened yesterday and at this point I haven't seen it yet. What products or process would you use to get it out of a cloth couch? The paint was BM Advance.

try denatured alcohol but test it on the fabric in an inconspicuous area. Possibly mineral spirits as well.

Rubbing alcohol or latex paint remover like "chomp", just throwing guesses out. Good luck, even warm water would be possible.

I would lay a damp rag over the spot for an hour, then come back and try to gently rub it off with the rag.

Yikes! Gotta love it when people call you about stuff like that, scare the bejesus out of you for several hours or days and then it turns out to be nothing.

If it had been a spot of paint, the best way to approach is to start with the least caustic approach and work your way up to the strong stuff. I like 804's idea of wet-ragging it for an hour........

I remember this nightmare old lady client. We did her exterior. She kept calling after it was done to complain. Then she said she found one more paint drip on the driveway. A guy drove out there to take care of it. It was birdsh*t...

We had big job cutting and rolling carports at this big townhouse place. It was a whiteish color. Some homeowner came out from down the street saying we got paint on his car. We go look. It was a dark brown spot.... He insisted we had it on our clothes from some other job and rubbed his car, or something ridiculous like that.

My buddy told me a story about how he was painting a closet jamb with oil, and got some on a mink coat. He told the lady he was taking it to a professional to get it out, but he just cut it out with a razor. He got away with it...
