Carpet > Nail Polish

Cutex Nail Polish Remover. This may sound obvious, but to remove nail polish from a carpet, simply dab the area with a cotton ball soaked in Cutex Nail Polish Remover and blot well. Just be sure to test an inconspicuous spot on the carpet first to make sure the nail polish remover doesn’t discolor the fabric. To remove the nail polish remover from the carpet, apply a drop of Ivory Dishwashing Liquid and some water and blot dry with a few sheets of Bounty Paper Towel.

Gillette Foamy and Oral-B Toothbrush. To get nail polish out of a carpet, squirt a little bit of Gillette Foamy shaving cream on the spot, use a clean, used Oral-B Toothbrush to gently scrub the spot with a little water, then blot with a paper towel.

Kingsford’s Corn Starch. If you spill a lot of nail polish on your carpet, start by blotting up as much of the nail polish by covering the stain with a mountain of Kingsford’s Corn Starch. Let it sit for about ten minutes and then sweep it up. The cornstarch will absorb most of the liquid from the carpet. Then use one of solvents listed above or below.

Shout. Spray Shout Stain Remover on the wet nail polish stain, let sit for three minutes, and then blot with a wet cloth. Repeat as many times as necessary.

WD-40. Spray WD-40 over the nail polish stain and blot it up with a paper towel or a soft cloth. Repeat if necessary. The petroleum distillates in the WD-40 work as a solvent on the nail polish. To remove the resulting oil stain from your carpet, scrub gently with a soapy solution made from a few drops of Dawn Dishwashing Liquid in one cup of water and blot well.

Windex. Spray Windex on the wet nail polish stain and then blot up the stain with a paper towel or a soft cloth. Repeat if needed.
