Remove Nail polish from Carpet - Carpet Cleaning Wildwood MO

June 29, 2020

Removing nail polish from carpet is a tricky task. However, no need to cry over spilled nail polish! The most important thing to remember in your moment of terror is that you must not rub at the spot without first pre-treating it. Avoid temptation, because scrubbing at wet nail polish with a cloth or paper towel will just distribute the polish across the surface and massage it further into the carpet fibers, forcing it to set in faster. Keep your cool and follow these tricks to remove nail polish from carpet.

Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover

Attempt this first: Soak a cotton ball with non-acetone nail polish remover and use it to lightly dab at the nail polish spill while it’s still wet. Alternate dabbing the stain with the cotton ball and a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb the remover and the loosening stain. Never saturate the fibers completely with the nail polish remover; only apply enough to dampen the spot, repeatedly dabbing with fresh cotton balls and clean cloths until the stain has lifted. If the stain has already dried, use the nail polish remover as a pre-treating solution to wet the stain, and then supplement with hairspray or dry cleaning solvents to provide extra power.

Never use acetone remover for cleaning nail polish off of carpet that contains acetate, triacetate or modacrylic. If you don’t know what your carpet is made from, don’t risk it. Acetone can be harmful and cause more damage, including deterioration.

Dry Cleaning Solvent

Spot treat dry nail polish stains on a carpet using dry cleaning cleanser. The compound cleaning agents that make up store-bought dry carpet cleaners come as a powder, so work a teaspoon of the cleaner into the stain with an old toothbrush. Let it set in for 10 minutes or so, and then rub in circles at the stain with the same toothbrush, but this time wet the brush with water to further spot-treat the spilled nail polish. The bristles will begin to remove the stain. Wipe the area down with a clean, dry cloth, and once the nail polish is removed, vacuum the rug to remove any remaining dry carpet cleaning granules.


Hairspray’s so good to us stain-makers, but as you’re scanning your hair care cabinet, make note that the most effective hairspray has a higher ratio of alcohol as an ingredient. Alcohol-free hairsprays aren’t going to cut through stains.

If you do have a product that fits the bill, moisten the nail polish stain with a little bit of water and then spritz the hairspray directly onto the stained area. Blot with a clean cloth and repeat to wipe and lift the stain.
