Nail Polish Remover Spilt on Table


My daughter spilled nail polish remover (acetone) on my kitchen table, and then wiped it up. My table now has a large cloudy, rough area where the remover ate through the finish on the wood table. Are there any ideas on how to fix this, or am I stuck replacing this table or having it refinished? Help, the table is only 1 1/2 years old!

Try rubbing cigarette ashes with a dab of mayonnaise on it. (06/22/2005)

I have a bedroom dresser that also has nail polish remover damage on it. I called a furniture refinisher, who came to my home & he said that he would have to wet sand it & then refinish the top of the bureau so as to make it all the same color @ a cost of $150. I decided to put a bureau scarf on the area. Can you use a tablecloth? Or do you have a lot of elbow grease to sand the top of the table? In any event, good luck (06/22/2005)

Let mayonnaise sit on it for about an hour, wipe off and the put 2 or 3 paper towels folded in half on top of the mark and then run an iron over top a few times. Lift the paper towel to see if there is any change. If it is just starting then continue ironing and after about 4 strokes over the spot look under the paper towel to check progress. (11/30/2005)

I just split nail polish remover on my boyfriends coffee table! I am trying the mayo trick. Hope it works! I hope he still has some Christmas spirit left. (12/26/2005)

I just used the ashes with a dab of mayo and it looks 100% better, it's not completely gone but it's also not completely noticeable like it was. Thanks for the tip. (08/18/2006)

history of Nail polish remover

I was wondering if anyone knew the history of nail polish remover, like when nail polish remover was first used, and what was the reason for using the product.

Editor's Note: Nail polish remover is made of acetone or a non acetone solvent. It was first developed (polish remover) to remove nail polish but the chemicals in it have been used as solvents for much longer.

I'd look up acetone and the other ingredients in nail polish remover and look them up individually. (12/03/2006)

Oh my gosh, I was freaking out but I just tried the mayo and ashes trick on my coffee table because I spilled nail polish remover at it is already making a difference after a few minutes. Thanks so much! This is the only place I found that had any advice other than getting the table refinished. Its amazing! (06/16/2007)

Try washing it with hot water and soap a few times so the remover doesn't sink farther into the wood. If that doesn't work than try mayo. (06/20/2007)

Can someone clarify the cleaning of the nail polish remover from the surface of a wooden coffee table. I read above to use mayo and ashes, but how EXACTLY do you use it?

PLEASE, someone help me. This seems to be the most useful website I have found yet. (07/09/2007)

Oh, oh. I should have looked at this site first. My daughter spilled nail polish on the table, and I used nail polish remover to remove it. It removed the nail polish and the finish, now I have a huge cloudy stain on my table, and still hiding it from my husband. (08/28/2007)

My mom bought a brand new white gloss table which cost in and around £500. I actually put pen on it before, and I panicked and put white nail tip nail polish on top. I'm scared to try anything else, and after many attempts to cover it up, my mom found out and I'm grounded for two weeks. (09/16/2007)
