You painted your nails and you accidentally spilled some of the nail polish on your carpet? Please, don’t panic because you can easily remove it – you just need to know which steps to take. And because I have spilled nail polish on my carpet many times before I know exactly what you need to do – and I am going to teach you in this article!
Is The Nail Polish Dry Or Wet?
Before we continue with the removal of the nail polish, you need to determine whether the stain is wet or dry.
I definitely recommend you immediately blot the nail polish with a paper towel as soon as you spill it and before it starts to dry because that way the removal will be easier. Of course, do not rub or wipe the area because you will drive the nail polish further into the fabric – just gently blot.
If the nail polish has already dried, grab a butter knife and scrape as much of it as possible.
The Next Steps You Need To Take:
After you follow the previous steps, then it’s time to wet the area with cold water.
Then spray the stain with rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover (but one without acetone in it) and scrub the area with a toothbrush for a minute or so. Continue pouring cold water over the stain as you scrub.
Then blot the stained area with a white cloth. The stain should be gone by now, however, if it still remains – repeat the steps as many times as necessary.
