There is a member on here who does upholstery work, he might know a better idea.

Depends on the kind of paint. If it is latex, then soap and water could do it. If its oil based, it will take mineral spirits, and that is going to stink.

a wax and grease remover may take it off, but you will need to be careful that it doesn't take the color with it. but if they are cloth, then you are probably SOL.

Are they cloth or vinyl? I've heard acetone works wonders on either if it's an oil based paint. (heard from a spot repair/used car refurbisher)

TEST ON A HIDDEN AREA FIRST TO MAKE SURE IT WON'T STAIN!
