    If it's on the carpet, then a new carpet is the only way really. Scrapyard or ebay

    Is the boot lining rubber? if so, bend it at the paint, hot soapy, and a scrubbing brush.

    As Libby suggests

    Hot soapy water scrubbing brush and if you access to one perhaps a pressure washer to assit the scrubbing...

    Will white sprit do the job?

    Or how about a breakers yard.. they're always good for spares.
