How To Remove Nail Polish From Carpet

by May 22, 2019Cleaning Tips0 comments

Nail polish is a great way to change the look of your hands, but applying it yourself can be a messy job. And if you happen to get nail polish on certain surfaces, such as carpet, it can be a challenging substance to get out.
 
Before you panic when considering how to remove nail polish from carpet, give this at-home 4-step process a try:
 

Follow these easy steps!

 
1.) Remove as much wet polish as possible. A fresh nail polish spill is much easier to clean than a dried one, so get as much of the polish off the carpet as possible before it dries out. A large spoon may be helpful to scoop up excessive spills. If using a spoon, once the spoon is dirty with nail polish, wipe it off before going back to the carpet to get more. It is essential to prevent the spreading of nail polish.
 
2.) Absorb the excess. After you have removed as much nail polish as you can with the spoon, absorb even more with an old cloth or towel. Wrap the cloth around a couple of your fingers and blot the nail polish with the cloth. Please do not rub the affected area. This will move the polish around and work it deeper into your carpet.. After each blot, use a new section of cloth to avoid spreading the stain. Continue this process until no further color is coming from the spill.
 
3.) Choose a cleaner to use. Avoid using bleach and acetone, as both of these can damage and discolour the carpet. The most effective cleaner will be non-acetone nail polish remover, but you can also try:
–           Hair spray
–           Window cleaner
–           Rubbing alcohol
–           Hydrogen peroxide (for light carpets only)
 
4.) Blot the area with cleaner. Dampen a fresh clean cloth with the nail polish remover or cleaner of your choice. For the best results, blot the stain the way you did with the dry towel. Switch to a fresh section of cloth regularly to prevent spreading. Add more nail polish remover or cleaner to the cloth as necessary, and keep dabbing until the stain is gone.
Avoid pouring nail polish remover and other cleaners directly onto the carpet, as they can soak through and damage your family’s carpets.

  • I’ve used this company 2 times now and am very impressed. The office staff made sure to confirm scheduled appointment time a day before visit, and also on the day to tell me that a service agent was on his way. When the Dazzle Carpet service agent arrived he was very professional, polite and got to work right away. I was very satisfied with the quality of work. I will always use this company going forward.

  • Dazzle came to do carpet cleaning in my apartment building which turned out incredible. Our building is very old and the carpets were very saturated. You can see the lightness in color now and they no longer smell. I also utilized them to clean my carpet, bar stools, and couch on the same day. They did an excellent job. Highly recommend! Very knowledgeable
