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  I used Dazzle Carpet Cleaning for the first time this week and am super impressed with the service and quality of work. After my previous carpet cleaner retired, I found Dazzle by searching carpet cleaners on the internet. I feel lucky to have found such a fantastic company first try. Kiera is very organized setting up the appointment and reminders and making sure I knew when the technician was arriving. Rob and his assistant cleaned the carpets. Rob is a very informed and talented professional. He ensured an excellent clean of my carpets and care of my walls and corners. I am very impressed and will call Dazzle in the future. I am also happy to support a small, local business.

  • 5 star review  Dazzle Carpet Cleaning provided excellent service at very competitive prices. The technician they sent, Aidan, was punctual, professional and pleasant. He worked on stains until both he and I were satisfied they were removed. The products used were scent-free and dry within a couple of hours. I would definitely use Dazzle services again.

  • 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  I called on Monday to have my carpets cleaned. I was given an appointment for Wednesday between 10:00 and 12:00. 11:15 my buzzer went. A very nice young man ( Aiden ) came to my door. I was very impressed with him the moment he came in the door. He told me where he was going to start and finish. I had some very bad stains and he was able to get them all out. The price quoted to me was spot on, there were no hidden fees. You don't need to look any further just book now with Dazzle.

  • 5 star review  From start to finish, I am so impressed and pleased with Dazzle's Carpet Cleaning service. Kiera was kind and accommodating when booking the appointment and promptly followed up right until the technician arrived at our door. Mattias, the technician, was pleasant and thorough, and he took care to make sure our carpets were to our liking. The carpet dried quickly and was definitely clean afterwards! We have had different companies in over the years, but I think we are going to stick with Dazzle from now on.
