The Harder Way to Clean Nail Polish off Carpet

The sooner you can get to the stain, the better. Searching for a solution online and then searching your home for the various suggested chemicals that might help takes valuable time. Here are just some of those chemicals that lay claim to being able to get nail polish out of carpet: non-acetone nail polish remover (acetone can damage and discolor carpet), hairspray, hydrogen peroxide (which acts like bleach, so use only on lighter-colored carpet), rubbing alcohol, window cleaner and carpet stain remover. Whatever chemical you choose, the steps to follow are similar:

  1. Use a clean dishcloth or paper towel to dab the spill to get excess polish off.
  2. Test the chosen chemical on an inconspicuous area of your carpet to make sure it won’t stain.
  3. Pour the chemical on the stain and start blotting.
  4. Scrub the area with soapy water, putting elbow grease into it. Rinse the sponge out and keep repeating until the chemicals are out of the carpet.
  5. Rinse the carpet with warm water.
  6. Dry your carpet with a dry towel or paper towel; use a fan if needed for further drying.
  7. For dried nail polish, first wet the stain with warm water and then follow steps 2-6.
