How do you remove paint from car carpet?

I bought a couple of gallons of paint earlier today, and when I was driving it home, some seeped onto the carpet of my car. What’s the easiest way to get paint off the floor of my car?

Oh, no! Let’s get that cleaned up.
To remove paint from your car’s carpet, if the paint is still wet, soak up whatever you can with paper towels. Then, use a wet rag to blot the spot and lift the remaining paint out of the carpet.
If the paint is dry, fill a bucket or bowl with hot water and add some dish soap. Wet the paint thoroughly until it softens. Alternatively, you could soften the paint with a steamer. Then, scrape it up. Clean whatever’s left with the soapy water and a rag.
