I hope this helps, I knocked over a container of nail polishes onto my light blue bedroom carpet. Needless to say some of them broke, hot pinks, lime greens, etc. After I blotted up what I could with a napkin, I used a bottle of liquid hairspray, a brush, and after scrubbing a bit it came out in no time. Be generous with the hairspray, I literally poured it on. Any kind will do.

    I spilled dark wine fingernail polish on my light bedroom carpet. Panic! I grabbed polish remover and poured on it and rubbed with a rag and made a worse mess. By now it was almost dry. Help! Someone said to use Windex of all things. I had an off brand window cleaner, but tried it and in a couple of minutes the carpet was like new. I didn't think it would work, but it did. Remember this just in case.

    When my cat knocked down a glass tray from my dresser and broke a bottle of nail polish in the process, acetone took it all out without hurting the carpet. Of course, I don't know what condition the hardwood floor is in underneath, but hey, if I ever pulled up the carpet, the whole floor would have to be refinished anyway.

    I just spilled teal blue in my bedroom carpet. I jumped up and ran into my bathroom to get every cleaning product. Nothing worked. Then I jumped on my lap top and typed it up on ask.com and saw to use nail polish remover which I have very little of. Too my surprise I read a blog where someone used windex and it worked better. It all came out! Yes. It works better than nail polish remover!

    How do I remove dry blue fingernail polish from tan carpet?

    My daughter spilled red nail polish on light blue carpet a couple years ago. We went to the store and bought acetone nail polish remover. I'd test an area before doing this.

    We poured the acetone on the spot (it was a big spot) or you could put it onto an old, clean rag. DAB it, don't rub it in. You will have to use a lot of rags. It took about an hour to get the entire stain out, but after the carpet dried, you couldn't tell anything had been spilled on it.

    I have not tackled a problem like this but perhaps maybe, the use of acetone would be the way.. But be sure to test on an out of sight, never to be seen place to check that the acetone will not melt the fabric.

    Use Windex, spray the spot, scrub it in with a brush, and blot. My daughter got black nail polish out of her beige Berber carpet with this. (11/11/2010)

    My daughter dropped red nail polish on my beige carpet and I don't know how to clean it.

    By Rommy from Bell Gardens, CA

    Answers:

    Nail Polish on Carpet

    Way #1-

    Use Non acetone nail polish remover and hot water. Use the nail polish right on the spot. Always keep the stain wet. Use small circular motions and scrub. Don't push too hard or you may find yourself with a larger spot than you started with. Then put the hot water on it and keep scrubbing. This should work. Be cautious, nail polish remover may take the color out of your carpet.

    Way#2-

    Follow the advice in #1, but instead, use nail polish remover, hydrogen peroxide, carpet cleaner, water, and hair spray and it might get it out.

    Way #3-

    Use a lot of water, keep the stain wet! Use about 15-20 squirts of hair spray and 3-5 splashes of rubbing alcohol. Scrub gently with a small scrub brush. Blot with paper towels. Repeat as necessary. Don't forget to keep pouring water during the process.

    Way#4-

    Windex, nail polish remover, shaving cream, hairspray, and lots of water. It might make you sick from the fumes, but the key is persistence. Continue to scrub and scrub and add stuff and most should come out.

    Way#5

    Use one tablespoon of ammonia and 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide.

    Nail Polish on Carpet

    When my cat knocked a glass tray off my dresser and a bottle of nail polish broke in the carnage, the only thing that would completely remove it from the carpet was acetone. Regular nail polish remover got a lot of it up, but only acetone got it ALL up. You can buy acetone in Walmart next to the nail polish remover, or in beauty supply stores in smaller amounts than you can buy at a hardware store. (08/25/2010)

    How do I remove red nail polish from my beige carpet?

    By Roberta from Newburyport, MA

    Answers:

    Nail Polish on Carpet

    Use acetone. It is available in a lot places including Wal-mart where they sell nail polish remover. My cat knocked a mirrored tray off my dresser once and it broke a bottle of nail polish when it landed. Nail polish remover helped, but the acetone did the trick. Of course, if you have a nice hardwood floor underneath, it may ruin the finish. My floors are just wood so I didn't care. That was 4 years ago and it never hurt the carpet. (07/21/2010)

    Does anyone know how to remove clear nail polish the your interior carpet of your vehicle?

    By Adrianne from Delton, MI

    Answers:

    Nail Polish on Carpet

    My daughter and her slumber party friends spilled a bottle of red nail polish on my living room carpet years ago and guess what I took it off with? (with no remaining color in the carpet whatsoever). Nail polish remover. Go get some "real" nail polish remover though, Acetone (remover used to contain it, but no longer does) and try that. You can find it at some drug stores and they definitely carry it at lumber yard type stores. Wear gloves and use a clean cloth and try not to rub it, more like dab it briskly. (It spreads if you rub). Use a lot of elbow grease and keep going until it comes off. When it is off, use soap and water (fresh rag) and then get as much of the Acetone out as you can. It is smelly (and poisonous, so take care). If you can, air out your car with the windows down for a bit. You might want to put a dry cloth over the spot also with a brick or something heavy to soak up any remaining liquid. (06/15/2010)
