How do you remove nail polish from a sweater?

Be very careful with nail polish remover. I had a spot of nail polish on a polyester suede dress. The polish remover removed the suede as well as the polish-- so I was worse off than when I started.

Try fingernail polish remover and try to brush it off instead of rubbing it. Hand wash that spot right after and launder as usual. (04/04/2005)

I would first try non-acetone fingernail polish remover.The acetone type might damage the sweater if it has polyester in it. (04/08/2005)
You can remove it by using Motsenbocker's Liftoff #3. We tried it on our cotton quilt and the stain just vanished, like magic! You can purchase it on-line or at The Home Depot for about $6. It also works on carpets, countertops and floors, and tile. I removes permanent marker stains, as well. It is waterbased and biodegradable. No strong chemicals like acetone. (08/07/2005)
Windex worked perfectly! (01/18/2008)
