HOW TO: Remove Nail Polish From Your Carpets

by Nov 30, 2018Carpet Cleaning0 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 3-step process a try:

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 discolor 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)

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  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  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.

  • 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.
