Methods to Get Nail Polish Out of Carpet
There is definitely more than one way to remove nail polish from carpet. Some of these methods work better than others. Following is a rundown of our best picks for nail polish removal:
– Hairspray: For those that thought hairspray was only used to hold your hair in place, think again. It can be a helpful tool in removing nail polish. You should first wet the area with a generous amount of water and then spray about 15 sprays of hairspray on the stain. Using a soft bristled toothbrush, work to remove the rest of the nail polish out of the carpet fibers.
– Vinegar: This household ingredient is used for several different cleaning solutions, including nail polish removal. You need to completely saturate the stain with vinegar and then allow the liquid to sit on it for about 10 minutes. Once you have given it some time, you can blot the stain with a paper towel or a clean, white cloth. This can be repeated as many times as needed to remove the stain.
– Baking Soda & Ginger Ale: Baking soda is another ingredient found in most kitchens that can be a useful cleaning tool. You should completely cover the stain with baking soda. Once you have done this, saturate the baking soda with ginger ale. Let that sit for about 10 minutes to work at loosening the stain. Now you can scrub in a circular motion to successfully get rid of the polish stain.
– Window Cleaner: In a nail polish emergency, window cleaner can prove to be useful as well. The first thing you need to do is to remove the nail polish as much as possible before using the cleaner. Once that is accomplished, you can spray the window cleaner on the stain and work to blot and scrub it out and remove the polish.
