The Spotlight: Nail Polish Stain Removal

Family with Nail Polish

Family with Nail Polish

Some stains are easier to clean than you’d think, some are tougher than their appearance let’s on, but then there are stains that are just as tough as they look. Nail polish is one of the trickiest stains out there and can be a challenge to clean at home.

This carpet stain removal guide should help you get rid of or at least lighten fresh nail polish stains. Remember, though, that Oxi Fresh is always here to help. Our expert carpet cleaners can deal with those stains that won’t budge or are just too big to tackle by yourself.

Thanks to howtocleanstuff.net for the great information!

Step 1
As with all stains, you want to act fast. Use a spoon to remove any nail polish still on the carpet, scooping up and towards the center of the spot. Make sure you don’t spread the stain around.

Step 2
Blot at the spot with a clean towel to remove more of the stain. Make sure you blot towards the center of the spot.

Step 3
Lightly blot the spot with a damp towel. Do NOT use a lot of water for this – your goal is to keep the stain from drying out.

Step 4
Put some nail polisher remover on a clean towel and blot the spot. Frequently swap to different parts of the towel as you go so you don’t spread the polish around.

IMPORTANT: Nail polish remover is not a carpet-friendly product, especially if it has acetone. Test it on an inconspicuous part of the floor to make sure it won’t cause color loss or transfer before using it.

Step 5
Once you aren’t getting out any more nail polish, put some rubbing alcohol on a clean towel and blot the spot. Frequently swap to different parts of the towel as you go so you don’t spread the polish around.

IMPORTANT: Alcohol is not a carpet-friendly product. Test it on an inconspicuous part of the floor to make sure it won’t cause color loss or transfer before using it.

Step 6
Once you aren’t getting out any more nail polish, mix a small amount of dish soap with warm water, dampen a towel, and thoroughly blot the area.

Step 7
Dampen a towel with water and blot the area to remove all the soapy residue. You may need to do this several times to fully remove the residue.
