How do you get dried paint out of carpet?

Try a little paint stripper or "goof off" on a small area to see if it causes damage to the carpet. If not, work a little into the carpet, let it sit for a few minutes then use water and a wet vac to pull it back out. Rinse it a few times, using the wet vac. You may need to go through the process a few times, but understand that the carpet has to be dry when you put the paint stripper on, otherwise it won't soften the paint. BTW, this only works for latex, oil and laquer paints, epoxy or other high-tech paints aren't really affected by paint stripper.
