If this is indoor latex and "Not" acrylic, you could simply use a wet sponge or a nonmetallic, relatively smooth edged scrapping implement and a little elbow grease. If you are not able to apply either of those techniques then try this. Latex paint is entirely water soluble, or dissolves easily in water and thus is really only useful on indoor applications. Put a stopper in the drain. Run hot water to above the level of the spilled paint while adding a mild, nonabrasive solvent such as any dishsoap to the water.... lets say 1/3 cup. Let sit for about 15 minutes. Whatever paint remains will easily wipe clean with a sponge either under the water or when water is drained. Matthew David Black

What is theDifference between oil paint and latex?

I don't know... seriously. But I think oil paint is more non-sticky and the texture is like oil unlike latex. oil paint is usually more durable and can be washed to get stains off. oil paint takes a good 18 hours to really dry .the smell is not good for you and even worse is the paint thinner you use to clean up. if you should spill some on the rug you'll be high as a kite trying to get it off with paint thinner. latex needs to be repainted sooner than oil but that is really the only draw back to it. you can get odor free latex, it drys to the touch in an hour (cured in 12 hours) painting tools clean up with water if you spill some on a rug can be cleaned up if you see it as soon as it spills apples and oranges I've used both.

How to Clean a Latex Mattress?

A latex mattress can be valuable for many homeowners. It is waterproof, allowing for easy cleanup after a liquid spill. While most spills are easy to clean, some liquids can result in staining or a bad odor. To clean stains and prevent odor, use a baking soda and warm water solution. Mix 1 part baking soda to 5 parts warm water, and stir. Apply this solution across a latex mattress, allowing it to remain on stains for several minutes. Using a soft brush or rag, clean the stained areas using a clockwise motion. Make sure to rinse the latex mattress with water after cleaning.
