white paint stain removal tip

Any good tip on how to remove a white paint stain from a black suit? The stain is a vertical thin white stripe running down the middle of the back of the suit. (looks like a "skunk" stripe!!) I think it is white paint, although might be primer? Not sure! It is completely dry now! My partner noticed it right before dinner and it was already almost completely dry. (at least it made her laugh :)) It's my favorite suit. Please any advise.

I would consult with a dry cleaner. It's amazing what they're able to get out of garments without harm/damage to the garment.

If this were a paint brush, I could tell you how to get the dried paint out of it no problem, but I wouldn't recommend the same technique for a suit, certainly not one you intended to wear in public again. :p

Thanks. Dry cleaner took care of it. The suit's hanging there, looking great!! :)
