Wow, I'm not sure on how to get rid of the paint, maybe some baking soda and vinegar or water or dishsoap to try and soak it up?

How much? A few drops is one thing, a gal. is another.

If it's too much for this method cut the section out and replace it with a piece from a closet etc.

Thats a really good idea woodchuck! I have some nail polish i need to remove!

Pull the paint up with a razor blade. Then soak whats left with a mix of baking soda and water. Hopefully that will help.
