How do I remove fingernail polish from carpet?

Nail polish remover or acetone gets it out of carpet, and anything made of cloth. I prefer acetone. It is what takes off the acrylic nails. At Walmart there is usually a big bottle cheap where they sell the nail remover. It won't bleach or stain your carpet or cloth stuff.
One night I came home my hubby had fallen asleep, but my daughter who was 3 at the time was still awake. She played possum when my husband went to sleep. When I got home at 12:30 midnight, she was not only still awake, but she had nail polish all over herself, her pajamas, and the carpet in her room. She had taken a chair climbed up on the sink counter, and she had a small stool on the counter, and unlocked the cabinet in the bathroom where she found a haven of nail polish.
Anyway, I took her to Walmart with me, and I got some acetone. I got home and used that. I just poured that stuff on the places in the carpet where the nail polish was. It just disappeared in seconds. It was cool. I did the same thing to my daughter's pajamas. It works good. Oh you don't have to scrub at all. It didn't hurt my carpet. If nail polish remover doesn't work try acetone; it works great. (08/21/2009)
