How To Remove Nail Polish From Carpet


Spilled Nail Polish


To clean nail polish from synthetic carpet, follow the procedures listed below.  Begin with step one, progressing only to the next step if necessary.  Remember that you always want to use the gentlest approach to cleaning a carpet stain first.


(Begin with step 1, if the stain remains then proceed to the next step. Always test the following stain removal solutions in an inconspicuous area first to make sure they won't damage your carpet.)

Synthetic Carpet

1.  Use an acetone based clear nail polish remover.

2.  Use a dry cleaning solvent such as Carbona or Energine. Dry cleaning solvent should never be used on polyester.


So you're watching yet another episode of Lost on TV while painting your toes, and are startled when the weird monster thingy crashes into the plane cabin and eats the pilot.  Freaky stuff!  If I were painting my toes I probably would have dropped my nail polish on the carpet as well.  Thankfully I'm a guy and I don't paint my toes.  I would like to know what in the heck the monster is though.  Lost is a very peculiar show.

Good luck with this one.  Nail polish on carpet is not a fun stain to remove.
