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?

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

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