Doing your nails on the carpet and accidentally spill some? Don’t
worry—it can be cleaned! Like may other stains, the key to cleaning a nail polish stain is to attack it quickly. The longer you wait, the more it begins to dry and set in to your carpet. To get started, you’ll need:
1. Nail polish remover
2. Paper towel
3. Tooth brush
You’ll want to add a few drops of nail polish remover to your paper
towel—basically enough to dampen it! Blot the paper towel on your nail polish stain, and make sure not to rub it. By rubbing the stain, you’ll be pressing all of it even deeper into your carpet’s fibers. We want to try and soak up as much of the stain on the surface first before we do any hard cleaning.
Repeat this process a few times with other pieces of paper towels. The stain should become lighter with each new application of nail polish remover. Once you’ve done that, you can pour some nail polish remover directly onto the stain. Use your toothbrush to gently scrub it for about a minute or so.
When finished, take another paper towel, cover the stain, and rub the area with the towel. You may want to also repeat the process with the toothbrush to remove any little bits of paper towel that may have gotten caught!
