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.

  • 5 star review  Showed up when they were supposed to - I have had too much trouble with other companies no shows. Tech Aiden did a great job, asking questions as needed and letting me know of problems spots. Now that everything is dry, all the carpets look glossy and clean. I will be calling them again for future cleaning.

  • 5 star review  My carpets looks brand new! The service was amazing, the people were very polite , the price is complete amazing too! They didnt manage to take out one stain but it almost faded , so I easily removed it with vinegar and it was gone . I feel like I would have to deal with it more difficult if they hadn't remove the stain as much as possible! I always had trouble finding someone who can clean my carpets, but I finally found one that I can trust!

  • 5 star review  Smokers these guys are busy! Called wanting to get my place cleaned this Saturday before my lease was up, the receptionist kindly explained that they were fully booked but took the time to tell me all about their services and prices even still. Great discounts for first time customers. Even though Dazzle could not book me in I'm still happy I called. Good customer service is hard to come by these days. I'm an old timer who believes that the person who answers the phone is the face of the business. I gave the receptionist my information and she will be calling me back to set up carpet cleaning for my new place when I'm moved out! Wow! Still giving me 20% off even though the discount ends this month. If this is just their reception, can't wait to see what kind of job cleaning they do. Will update after my appointment. Kiera (i before e, like you told me!) keep up the good work. You made an old man very happy by chatting with him on the phone today!

  • 5 star review  Bernard and his team are very professional. They don’t leave the job until you’re satisfied. I had some tough stains to get out and was surprised that they were able to get a lot of it out. I will definitely keep their number handy and use them again in the future!!
