Hello, and welcome to Just Answer.

You can find step by step instructions to remove the water-based paint from clothing, here:

Yes, rubbing alcohol is recommended, and no, White Spirits is not the same as rubbing alcohol. You'll want to use 70% Isopropyl alcohol, found in any pharmacy or supermarket. White Spirits is dry cleaning fluid/a turpentine substitute that is used to thin paint and clean brushes. Menthylated Spirits is a denatured alcohol consisting of a mixture of ethyl alcohol and methyl alcohol and should be alright to use, as well.

I wish you much good luck in getting the paint out of the clothing!
