Nail polish is lovely to look at if they’re on our nails. Unfortunately, sometimes, we accidentally spill nail polish on the carpet, and it looks like the carpet might be doomed for life. It looks impossible to remove those eye-catching stains. Take heart; there is no reason for you to panic. Removing these stains is not as hard as you think.
That one product you will need
Removing nail polish from your carpet only needs acetone, but do not make the mistake of pouring it directly on the carpet. Acetone might be very effective, but it is a harsh chemical that can cause damage even to the padding of your carpet. Put a small amount of acetone on a washcloth and pre-test this product on an inconspicuous area of the carpet. Once you’re satisfied that the acetone has no adverse effects on your carpet, dab it onto the area where the nail polish spilled.
After blotting the stain with acetone, take a clean, dry cloth and gently dab at the stain again. Doing this will remove the excess acetone that can later on damage your carpet even more. Look for any residue and blot it off using another dry cloth.
To finalize everything, use an all-purpose spotter
This is the final thing to do in removing the nail polish from your carpet. Apply the spotter on the stain then take a clean cloth to repeatedly but gently press on it. This is to ensure that nothing is left on the carpet. The acetone needs to be completely gone because of the damage it might cause, and any excess needs to be eliminated thoroughly.
That’s all you need to do whenever you end up with nail polish on your carpet. All it takes is acetone, clean, dry pieces of cloth, an all-purpose spotter and you’re good to go.
