It depends on the type of paint and how old the stain is... if it is fresh, get as much as you can off the carpet with an old towel. Then rise with a wet rag, soak up all the excess water with a towel. If you have a Dollar Tree store nearby, go and buy a product called Awesome - that is part of the name - it is in the cleaning section in a spray bottle - it cleans pretty much everything.
