Emulsion paint! Help! 😔

Was picking up some paint for a mate and wasn't even out of the town or on the corner and this happened. Help! Suggestions?

Current situation out with the paper towels and white spirit

It's difficult to see in that pic what part of the car the spill is. Thankfully emulsion paint is water based so your best bet is to mop/scrape up as much as you can then look to give the area a good wet clean. I wouldn't use white spirit, it may do more harm than good.

With emulsion as advised it is water based. When cleaning just use a fabric cleaner or G1010 diluted. Just go to the local petrol station with a jet wash and spray the Matt down. As for the fabric part use g101 or a Apc and "Gently" clean and dab away. Do not apply
To much pressure or scrub as it will cause the paint to get into the fabric and also remove the fabric fibres

Don't soak it too much, just keep it damp until you can get home and clean it properly. Once cleaned you might want to get some of that moisture absorber stuff and leave it in the car for a while to dry it out.

Keep giving it multiple hits with soapy water and a brush and if you have one, dry it down with a blower, a wet and dry vac will help also.

When you wash out a paint brush that has used emulsion, the stuff just keeps diluting down and it takes a while before all of the milkiness has gone out of the water, so i guess it will be the same with car mats.

It will take a fair bit of watering down and removal, but as others have said take your time and don't get it too wet. Emulsion takes a good while to properly dry, so you can go slow and easy on it. just keep absorbing and removing it from the car.

Also, if it is genuinely emulsion as stated, then you should only really need warm water and maybe a bit of soap - you shouldnt need any chemicals to fully dilute and remove it
