Removing Nail Polish Stains from Carpet

Nail Varnish on Carpet

So one of the kids got their hands on your nail varnish and started to play “make-up” games with it. Next thing you know the bottle has fallen on the carpet and is spilling everywhere. What should you do…

  • Scoop up and blot as much of the spill as possible. Vacuum up any dry particles.
  • Get a bottle of nail varnish remover.
  • Pretest the cleaning solution on an inconspicuous spot of carpet to ensure it does not discolor or damage the carpet.
  • Apply the cleaning solution to the stain area. Work from the outside of the stain toward the center.
  • Allow the cleaning solution to remain on the spill for at least five minutes.
  • Blot with a clean white cloth until no more stain transfers to the cloth. Do not rub the stain area or you might damage the carpet fibers.
  • Rinse with cold water. Be sure all cleaning solution is removed from carpet.
  • If you can still see the stain, repeat the process until either the stain is removed or the stain no longer transfers to the cloth.
  • Once the stain is removed, place layers of white paper towel on the site to absorb any moisture. Weight down the towels with a non-staining glass or ceramic object. You can let them sit overnight.
  • When the carpet is dry, vacuum to restore the texture.
