I have an ivory silk comforter that I purchased about a week and a half ago. It came in the mail, and I've already spilled a pink substance on it. It looked as if it was nail polish. I took a cotton ball and dipped it 1/4 of the way into nail polish remover, if you dab it and rub slightly, it should come out. I then took another cotton ball and dabbed some cold water onto the missing stain, this just took the majority of the polish remover out of the silk. Hope this helps!

Wipe up deposit. Treat with amyl acetate or acetone, not oily nail polish remover! Flush out with white spirit. Remove colour traces with methylated spirits. If washable article, rinse. Wash as usual.

Red nail polish splashed on my delicate silk blouse. I took it to the dry cleaner, he said it may cause damage because it is very delicate. So I am so upset because it is expensive. It is just a little stain. Is there any solution?

Thanks.

Nail Polish on Silk

ouch, be extremely careful but try putting clear nail polish right onto of the colored polish(this will soften it) and pull it up. (05/31/2009)
